Munnings’ Never Enough Time Best in Skipat Stakes
Munnings’ Never Enough Time (4f Munnings x What Time It Is, by Partner’s Hero) took out the Listed Skipat Stakes on Saturday at Pimlico for her second straight stakes victory.
The filly went right to the lead in the six furlong test on dirt and shook off early pressure to open a few lengths on the field as they entered the stretch. Always in command, Never Enough Time galloped home easily with the second place runner closing to three quarters of a length of her at the wire as she eased down in the closing stages.
A homebred for R. Larry Johnson and trained by Michael Trombetta, Never Enough Time is the winner of five of her nine starts.
"She's really nice. She does everything you ask her. She's pretty forward," jockey Julian Pimentel told Blood-Horse. "She came out of there running and she's just about business. We got the rail and we had to take advantage of that. I didn't get a whole lot of pressure on the turn so I was able to give her a little breather. When I asked her to run, she gave it to me."
She is one of five winners out of stakes placed What Time It Is, who is a half-sister to stakes winner and Grade II winner Strike The Moon and stakes winner Walk Of Stars.
What Time It returned to Munnings this year for a full sibling to Never Enough Time.
Never Enough Time is one of 10 stakes winners for Munnings in 2020 with those nine combining for 14 stakes victories. One of the best value sires in the world, Munnings is the sire of 42 stakes winners 69 stakes horses overall, led by Grade I winners I’m a Chatterbox and El Deal.
