With British Idiom (Flashback), who was 10th in the GIII Fantasy S., struggling to regain her form, trainer Brad Cox has had to go to his deep bench. Come September, Bonny South could emerge as his top Oaks threat. Owned and bred by Juddmonte Farms, the daughter of Munnings won the GII Fair Grounds Oaks in her stakes debut and has now won three straight. Having bypassed the Fantasy with this filly, Cox will need to find a spot for her. Is on a regular work schedule at Keeneland.
