Eleventh Winner for Dunkirk

Exciting young sire Dunkirk posted his eleventh winner when Hopehard (2c Dunkirk x Jazzy Melissa, by Grand Slam) scored at Laurel on Wednesday.

Improving off a debut fourth, the Dale Capuano trained colt was fitted with blinkers for this turf assignment and scored a half-length win in the five and a half furlong dash.

A modest $17,000 Keeneland September Yearling purchase, Hopehard is the first winner for Jazzy Melissa, who comes from the family of Group I winning sprinter Caller One.

Dunkirk is enjoying great results with his first crop of two year-olds led by Grade III winner Dunkin Bend.
