Multiple Gr.2 winning sprinter Munnings was represented by his first foal when Heaven’s Grace produced a colt on Tuesday morning at Anstu Farm. Heaven’s Grace is a full sister to Gr.2 Swale Stakes winner This Ones For Phil. Manager Jim Maloney commented “He’s a good quality colt – we couldn’t be happier with him.”
Munnings, the fastest son of Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Speightstown, is out of a half-sister to the G1 Personal Ensign Stakes heroine Icon Project and Grade 2 Oak Tree Derby winner Lasting Approval. He was purchased as a 2-y-o for $1,700,000 and won the G2 Woody Stephens Stakes, G2 Tom Fool H’cap and G2 Gulfstream Park Sprint Championship earning Beyer speed figures of up to 111. Munnings also hit the board on all but one of his seven starts at Grade 1 level including when second in the G1 Champagne Stakes at two.
He stands at Ashford at a fee of $10,000 this season.
