MUNTIJ Prevails in Maiden Test at Churchill

With runner-up finishes in Maiden Special Weights at Keeneland and Ellis this year, MUNTIJ got the job done here with a 1 3/4-length win at Churchill Downs. Shadowing the leader for most of the race going 6 1/2 furlongs on the main track, the 3-year-old son of DAAHER took over the lead in mid-stretch and pulled away late. Prior to this win, MUNTIJ had placed in five starts previous starts. He is a Shadwell Farm homebred out of Red’s Lucky Lady, by Lucky Lionel.
