Soaring Softly faced a star-studded international roster in the inaugural running of the 1999 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Gulfstream Park and she lived up to her billing as the favorite with a dramatic come-from-behind victory. The triumph secured Eclipse Award honors as champion turf female. In her previous two seasons of racing, she had won twice, before blossoming as a four-year-old with six wins including the Grade 1 Flower Bowl invitational at Belmont Park, in seven starts leading up to the Breeders’ Cup. She campaigned for the Phillips Racing Partnership and was trained by James Toner. Upon retirement, she returned to her birthplace at the historic Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, where she has produced a new generation of high-class racehorses.
