Seven American G1 winners in a single year - only Mr. Prospector can match it. They include the brilliant dual Eclipse Champion Songbird, two-year-old colt Bolt d'Oro, three-year-old fillies New Money Honey and Elate, and turf mare Dickinson, plus two Breeders' Cup winners: Talismanic in the Turf and Bar of Gold in the Filly & Mare Sprint. Eight million-dollar yearlings in 2018 – only Storm Cat and Northern Dancer ever had more in a single year.
