Lady Eli, the unbeaten winner of the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. I), is expected to return to the barn of trainer Chad Brown in December to prepare for a 2016 campaign.

The daughter of Divine Park won all three of her starts this year in impressive fashion, including the Belmont Oaks (gr. I) at Belmont Park on July 4th, but was sidelined after contracting the hoof disease laminitis. Fortunately, Lady Eli has recovered well, and it is hoped that she will come back to the races as good as ever next year.

In the Churchill Downs Stable Notes for November 12th, Chad Brown was quoted as saying “She’s over at Dell Ridge Farm in Lexington, Ky. currently and she’s doing real well. We’re hoping to have her back around December.”
