Well-Bred Munnings Filly Scores on Debut at Santa Anita

Juddmonte homebred Pleasant (f, 3, Munnings–Fair Lady, by Medaglia d’Oro) jumped well at odds of 9-2 in her debut run and forced the issue from an outside second. Traveling kindly while racing in hand, she turned up the heat on the far turn and braced for the challenge of heavily favored $1.2-million FTFMAR graduate and second-time starter Ruby Nell (Bolt d’Oro) leaving the quarter pole. Pleasant still had plenty in the tank, however, and stayed on nicely to graduate by 1 1/2 lengths. Fair Lady, a daughter of the brilliant GISW and GI Breeders’ Cup Sprint runner-up Honest Lady (Seattle Slew), had a filly by Not This Time in 2022 and was not bred back. This is also the loaded female family of GISWs First Defence (Unbridled’s Song), Empire Maker (Unbridled) and Chester House (Mr. Prospector). The Munnings over Medaglia d’Oro cross is also responsible for GSW Barkley. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0. O/B-Juddmonte (Ky); T-Bob Baffert.
