Bonny South ran twice as a juvenile, finishing fourth on debut before winning a Maiden Special Weight contest at Fair Grounds.

In February 2020, the Brad Cox-trained filly picked up an Allowance race at Oaklawn Park before returning to the scene of her first victory to contest the Gr.2 Fair Ground Oaks. Bonny South won the race by an easy two-and-a-half lengths, picking up 100 points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks.

Stepping up in grade, she next ran fourth in the Gr.1 Ashland Stakes at Keeneland, before running a good second to subsequent Gr.1 Kentucky Oaks and Gr.1 Preakness winner Swiss Skydriver in the Gr.1 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga.

Bonny South was second by a neck in the Gr.2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes in October and followed this at the end of November with second place in the Gr.2 Falls City Handicap at Churchill Downs behind Envoutante, who was already a winner at graded level.
