Hall of FameGrade 1 Gamely
Illuminant joins an esteemed list of esteemed Eclipse fillies in the Hall of Fame. Although it took the black beauty 4 tries to break her Maiden, she always hinted at being Grade 1 caliber and she proved it in her 4 year-old season when she traveled to Keeneland to run the mighty Tepin to a 3rd in the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley and she validated that tremendous performance when she bounded home a decisive winner in the Grade 1, $300,000 Gamely a month later. A high maintenance filly who required an enormous amount of TLC, Illuminant was sidelined for the remainder of her 4 year-old year and after an innovative deal for Eclipse to retain an interest in the star filly, she overcame all odds to return to the upper ranks at age 5, booming home best in the Wishing Well Stakes and then providing a smashing score in the Grade 2, $200,00 Monrovia. A Grade 1 winner at 9 furlongs and a Grade 2 victor at 6 1/2-furlongs, Illuminant resembles the prototypical all-around athlete with the versatility, adaptability, courage and psyche to be an elite thoroughbred racehorse. Illuminant was sold in November for $1.1 million and now resides side by side 2 other Eclipse legendary ladies, In lingerie and Curlalina, at the famed Shadai Farm in Japan.
