Kentucky-bred War Like Goddess won the Bewitch S. (G3) on closing day at Keeneland on April 29, becoming racing’s newest millionaire.

With Joel Rosario riding for trainer Bill Mott, War Like Goddess won the 1 ½-mile by 1 ¾ lengths, stopping clock in 2:31.26 for owner George Krikorian. It was the second straight win in the Bewitch for War Like Goddess, a 5-year-old mare by English Channel. She is produced from the North Light (IRE) mare Misty North, and she was bred in the Bluegrass by Calumet Farm.

“It was a slow pace in front, but she got up there,” said Rosario. “She did great in there. She’s amazing. She’s a really nice horse.”

The $186,000 winner’s share of the $300,000 purse increased War Like Goddess’ earnings to $1,079,684. The Keeneland sales graduate has won seven of nine career starts.

Bill Mott said of his charge’s effort following her second win in the Bewitch, “Oh, she’s honest. She’s as honest as the day is long. She’s never turned in a poor effort for us and she’s really done her part.”
