Dune In Red Remains Perfect with Win in Incredible Tilly Stake

Her undefeated streak was on the line June 20th in the $15,000 Incredible Tilly Stakes for Illinois 2-year-old pacing fillies and Mike Einhaus’s Dune In Red remained perfect to start her career by posting her third win in as many tries, knocking off seven rivals by 3-¾ lengths, in 1:56.1.

Forwardly placed throughout the mile by driver Mike Oosting the daughter of Duneside Perch–She Has The Look rushed into the lead after a slow opening quarter of: 30.1.

Shortly after gaining control of the proceedings, Oosting elected to let a hard-charging The Bruzilian Blur (Brian Carpenter) take command as the field rolled by the half-mile mark in: 58.3.

Content to draft along in the pocket Dune In Red was fit and fresh as The Bruzilian Blur tried to fend off a bid from a first-over Fox Valley Ruby (Dean Magee) as the youngsters reached the three-quarter mile mark in 1:28.

Patiently awaiting the passing lane while those two continued to slug it out, Oosting then maneuvered the Robert Einhaus-trained miss down to the pylons and the good-looking chestnut responded like a seasoned veteran as she went cruising by her rivals to remain undefeated. The Bruzilian Blur hung on for second while Incredible Filly (Dave Magee) rallied for third.

Dune In Red has yet to taste defeat.
