Bred: Mark Secrest (Ky.)
Sire: Showing Up
Dam: Best Regards, by Street Cry
Bon Accord won his debut by 1 1/4 lengths at Calder Race Course then two starts later graduated again when he won the Calder Turf Dash Stakes. The chestnut by Showing Up didn't disappoint in his first graded stakes attempt, finishing a credible third and punching his ticket to the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf where he finished fourth, for owner Gelfenstein Farm.
By multiple Grade 1 winner Showing Up, Bon Accord is the second foal to race from his dam Best Regards. He comes from the family of multiple graded stakes winner Gaily Gailey and Crisos Il Monaco.
