Impressive Dunkirk at Churchill Downs

Promising young sire Dunkirk featured with a smart winner at Churchill Downs when Rumba (3f Dunkirk x Shawnee Moon, by Forestry) opened her account with a dominant victory.

Trained by Dale Romans, Rumba improved on a last start third to stride clear and win the one mile contest by four and a quarter lengths.

A $100,000 Fasig Tipton Kentucky October Yearling purchase, Rumba runs for Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Susan Magnier.

She is the first winner for Shawnee Moon, a half-sister to Grade III winner Indian Ocean and stakes-winner Megans Halo.
