MUNTIJ Chalks Up Back-to-Back Wins

Coming off a Maiden score at Churchill in November, MUNTIJ made it two-in-a-row with a commanding 5 3/4-length win at Gulfstream. The 3-year-old son of DAAHER broke well from post two in a 10-horse field and vied for the lead early, then backed off a little but still remained close to the frontrunners. He swung wide going into the stretch, ran by the front two and was ridden out to the wire in this one mile test. MUNTIJ was a 1 3/4-length winner going 6 1/2 furlongs at Churchill after runner-up finishes in Maiden Special Weights at Keeneland and Ellis earlier in the year. He was bred by Shadwell Farm out of Red’s Lucky Lady, by Lucky Lionel.
