Bio

Shuvee won New York's Filly Triple Crown and is the only filly to beat colts in the two-mile Jockey Club Gold Cup, a feat she accomplished twice, in 1970 and 1971. In her first season Shuvee defeated Gallant Bloom and Process Shot in the Frizette and the Selima. The following year she won the CCA Oaks, Alabama, Acorn, and Mother Goose to complete the fillies Triple Crown. She also defeated older mares in the Ladies and set a track record in the Cotillion. Shuvee's victories at 4 included the Top Flight, Diana, Beldame, and her first Jockey Club Gold Cup. At 5 Shuvee repeated her victories in the Top Flight and the Diana, and won the Jockey Club Gold Cup by seven lengths. She retired with record earnings for a filly. Shuvee produced eight foals, three of which were stakes winners. Her best foal was Shukey. Shuvee was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1975.
