The 2-year-old filly Eve rallied from far back to score her first victory at Laurel Park on Sunday, Dec. 6, winning by three and a half lengths at one mile. Owned by Bonita Farm and Daniel T. Doane and trained by Kevin Boniface, she is the first winner from the first crop of Etched, who stands at the Boniface family’s Bonita Farm in Darlington. The filly, one of 19 foals of racing age for her sire, is out of winning Cross Over Please (by Valley Crossing) and was bred by Bonita Farm.

Etched retired to stud after a career in which he won the Meadowlands Cup-G2, Monmouth Cup-G2 and Nashua Stakes-G3, and earned $587,586 from 11 starts. He is a son of Forestry out of Breeders’ Cup Distaff Stakes-G1 winner Unbridled Elaine, and a half-brother to graded/group winners Out of Bounds and Emotionless. His second dam, stakes winner Carols Folly, also produced Grade 1 winner Glitter Woman (dam of Grade 1 winner Political Force).
Etched, now 10, stands for $3,500 live foal.
