Robert and Lawana Low’s MUNNYS GOLD (Munnings) returns to action following an eye-catching 14 1/2-length victory in her career unveiling at Monmouth Park last June. Earning a 101 speed Beyer for the TDN Rising Star-earning performance that day, the Florida-bred counted among her vanquished rivals runner-up Alma Rose (Sharp Azteca), who went on to air next time out at Colonial and subsequently took a stakes race at Delaware. A $300,000 at the Fasig-Tipton July Sale, well above her sire’s 2021 yearling average of $131,231 for 81 head sold that year, the filly is trained by Hall of Famer Todd Pletcher, who connects at a 26% clip with horses returning from a 180+ layoff over the past five years.
