The Steve Asmussen-trained Dunkin Bend (2c Dunkirk-Misty Run, by Vindication) was an eye-catching winner at Saratoga on Saturday providing Dunkirk with more first-crop 2yo success.
Under Joel Rosario, the colt duelled early on before stretching away in the straight to score by almost six lengths.
Asmussen commented “He came out of it good, I thought he ran great. He’s a nice horse with a lot of talent; let’s see what he can do.”
Racing in the colours of Michael Langford, Dunkin Bend was bought for $110,000 at April’s OBS 2yo sale.
