MUNTIJ Runner-up to G1 Horse in Gulfstream Allowance

MUNTIJ put his two-race win streak on the line in this competitive nine-horse, seven-furlong Gulfstream Park allowance. The 4-year-old son of DAAHER sat behind the leaders early, went four wide on the turn to put himself just a length off the lead, and continued to run strongly through the stretch to earn the runner-up spot. The final time of the race was 1:21 2/5, just a second off the track record. MUNTIJ finished more than 10 lengths in front of the third-place horse and behind Florida Derby-G1 placed Ami’s Flatter who was making his first start since the Queen’s Plate. In his previous two starts, MUNTIJ won a maiden test at Churchill and then was a 5 3/4-length winner going a mile here in mid-December.
