Hat-Trick for Munnings Colt

El Deal (3c Munnings x Spirit of Wailea, by Out of Place) kept his unbeaten record intact when posting his third win in as many starts at Parx Racing on Tuesday. Prepared by Andrew Lakeman, El Deal had won his two previous starts at Aqueduct and took this six furlong allowance by a length and a half taking his earnings to $78,000. A $57,000 Keeneland November Weanling purchase, El Deal runs for the Passion Stable and is a half-brother to stakes-placed Legacy Wildcat from Spirit of Wailea, a half-sister to Grade II winner Choctaw Nation.
