Bipartisanship (GB)

Bipartisanship (GB) is a five year old mare by Bated Breath out of the Oasis Dream mare Dream Wild. Acquired by As One Racing as its first purchase at the 2023 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages sale, Bipartisanship (GB) was already an established runner. After starting her career in Ireland and competing at the graded stakes level, she came to the United States as a three year old and has been under the watchful eye of trainer Graham Motion ever since. She recently won her third stakes race — the PTHA President’s Cup Stakes (Listed) – and looks to do more in the second half of 2023. Other partners in the ownership of Bipartisanship include Commonwealth, Edgar Harty, Charles Fenwick, and Tom Kelso.

Last Race

Bipartisanship returned to Kentucky for the Ellis Park Turf Stakes on August 27. Run as the featured race on the closing weekend of the meet, the Ellis Park Turf Stakes included a talented group of nine fillies and mares. Piloted by jockey Chris Landeros, Bipartisanship settled in to the back of the pack down the backstretch before making a big run coming into the final turn. She closed on the leaders down the stretch, but came up just short to finish third with another solid effort. 

Next Race

After a summer campaign where she finished in the money in four of her five races, with the only exception a strong fourth in the Grade III Matchmaker Stakes on Haskell Day, Bipartisanship (GB) has increased her value as a mare that could either continue to race or begin her breeding career as a commercial broodmare. As a result, As One has entered her in the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, where she is catalogued as Hip No. 585. While it will be difficult to part with this special horse, from a business point of view it is the right time given her strong pedigree and racing this year.
