(f, 3, Dunkirk--Casseopia, by Tale of the Cat), backed at 7-1, stamped herself as one to watch with a good-looking debut win here. She saved ground while racing toward the back through an opening quarter in :23.98. The dark bay crept up closer down the backstretch, but was forced to steady on the far turn and was forced to await racing room. Under a tight hold thereafter, she was angled out widest of all at the top of the lane and came charging on the outside to post a smart two-length decision. Ginger Stone
(Elite Squadron) was second. The final time for 1 1/16 miles was 1:48.63. Sales history: $23,000 yrl ‘12 KEEJAN; $35,000 yrl ‘12 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0. O-Norma Lee Stockseth & Todd Dunn; B-Gaines-Gentry Thoroughbreds (KY). T-Donnie Von Hemel. Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
