Undefeated this year and a multiple Grade 1 Champion, she more than deserves her own thread! What do we think, when will she face older mares? Could she eventually run against the boys?

I don't think we will see her face older until the Distaff this fall.
ETA: It's not that I don't think she's good enough, but it would be slightly unusual for a trainer to run a star filly against older, stronger mares like Unique Bella until later in the year. MG isn't a big filly (although she doesn't appear to be as 'petite' as I heard some commentators describe her), so letting her mature a few more months might be wise.
And isn't she due for some freshening? Hasn't she's been running quite a bit so far this year?

Maybe Bal has some backstretch photos to share here?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I do, and I will get to it. She is a thing of beauty static or kinetic.

She had 5 starts this year, I don't think that is alot.

Good Magic, Monomoy Girl Work at Saratoga
"Meanwhile, multiple grade 1-winning 3-year-old filly Monomoy Girl breezed four furlongs in 49.88 seconds on Saratoga's main track, her first major training since winning her fourth straight grade 1 in the Coaching Club American Oaks July 22. The Tapizar filly is working toward a start in the $1 million Cotillion (G1) Sept. 22 at Parx Racing."
