2023: In foal to Accelerate
Bonheur’s sire, Munnings, was a three-time graded stakes-winner with earnings of $742,640. He sold for $150,000 as a Saratoga yearling, then hit the jackpot at $1.7 million as a Fasig-Tipton Florida 2-year-old who joined the stable of world-renowned owners Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith.
At the track, Munnings won three Gr.2 races, the Woody Stephens by 5 1/4 lengths at Belmont Park, the Tom Fool Handicap by 2 1/4 at Belmont, and the Gulfstream Park Sprint Championship by one length. In the Woody Stephens, he was clocked in 1:20.63 for seven furlongs, just .46 hundredths of a second off Left Bank’s track record. Munnings also finished second in the Gr.1 Champagne at Belmont as a 2-year-old and was third in five other important Gr.1 races, the Haskell Invitational, Hopeful, King’s Bishop, Vosburgh and Carter Handicap. He received nine consecutive Equibase ‘E’ ratings of 102 or more.
