New Juvenile Stakes-Winner for Munnings

Talented prospect Wakefield (2g Munnings x Proudtobeajones, by Seneca Jones) made it two wins in as many starts when taking out the $107,312 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity at Lone Star Park.

Trained by Karl Broberg, Wakefield won on debut at Lone Star on May 24 and was sent out favourite for this tougher five furlong assignment.

He tracked the leader and forged clear to win by more than a length.

Wakefield has won nearly $80,000 in prizemoney and is the best of five winners from stakes-placed Proudtobeajones.

He is the 27th stakes-winner for Munnings, whose progeny sold for up to $220,000 at the 2018 Fasig Tipton Kentucky July Yearling Sale.
