Castle Village Farm’s New York-bred two-year-old filly Underthemoonlight (Golden Missile-Yon Van Dance by Yonaguska), fresh off a maiden special weight win on November 29th at Aqueduct, has been nominated to the East View Stakes, the final NY-bred two-year-old filly stakes of the year. The $100,000 East View will be run at a distance of a mile and 70 yards at Aqueduct on Sunday, December 15th. The race drew a compact list of 11 nominations.
While the 15-day turnaround time from Underthemoonlight’s win to the East View may be too short, and the distance may be too long, still, it’s great to have a filly that shows enough talent to justify making the nomination. We’re looking forward to good things with Underthemoonlight, whether she ends up running in the East View or not.
