Juvenile Winners for Munnings
Munnings sired his third two year-old winner in less than a week when O’Keeffe (2c Munnings x Coco Ecolo, by Johannesburg) scored a debut win at Arlington on Sunday.
Trained by Lary Rivelli, O’Keeffe showed good pace from the gate and was tenacious to the line to win the four and a half furlong contest on the all weather track by a length and a half.
A $275,000 purchase from the OBS March Sale earlier this year where he galloped a furlong in 10 seconds flat, O’Keeffe is the second winner from stakes-placed Coco Ecolo.
O’Keeffe is the third recent two year old winner for Munnings joining Fastasiwannabe and Wakefield, who both won at Lone Star on May 24.
