What a wonderful evening!

Great program, for the first time ever we can watch it on TV, casting from the computer.

I had horrible results. A few "1st and 3rd" near-misses, including Stellar Agent, but no luck.

With their wins, both Accelerate and Monomy Girl entered rarified territory of runners with 5 or more Grade 1 wins.
It's a relatively short list, in recent times (since 2006):

ABEL TASMAN 6
ACCELERATE 5
AMERICAN PHAROAH 8
BEHOLDER 11
BLIND LUCK  5
CALIFORNIA CHROME 7
CLOSE HATCHES 5
CURLIN  6
EINSTEIN (BRZ)  5
ENGLISH CHANNEL  6
GAME ON DUDE 7
GINGER PUNCH  6
GIO PONTI  6
GUN RUNNER 6
INDIAN BLESSING  5
INVASOR (ARG)  5
LADY ELI 5
LAVA MAN  6
LOOKIN AT LUCKY  5
MONOMOY GIRL 5
MUSIC NOTE  5
NYQUIST 5
POINT OF ENTRY 5
RACHEL ALEXANDRA  5
ROYAL DELTA 5
SHARED BELIEF 5
SONGBIRD 9
STARDOM BOUND  5
STELLAR WIND 6
STEPHANIE'S KITTEN 5
TEPIN 5
UNTAPABLE 5
WISE DAN 11
ZENYATTA  13

Among this list, I'd have to say Gio Ponti and Zenyatta are/were my favorites.
