Impressive Debut for Dunkirk Filly

Promising filly Battle Tale (3f Dunkirk x Casseopia, by Tale of the Cat) opened her account with an impressive debut win at Oaklawn.

Prepared by Donnie Von Hemel, Battle Tale settled back off the pace and when angled into the clear out wide in the stretch, she powered clear to win the 1 and 1/16th mile maiden by two lengths.

A $35,000 Keeneland September Yearling purchase, Battle Tale is the first winner for Casseopia, an unraced half-sister to Grade I winner K One King from Grade II winner Tis Michelle.

Battle Tale is another bright prospect for exciting young sire Dunkirk, who was the Leading North American First Crop Sire in 2013.
