Dune In Red
Mike Oosting guided Dune In Red to an impressive win in her career debut as they teamed up for a national season's mark of 1:55.2 in the Egyptian Grande Stake.
Balmoral fans got a sneak peek at some of this year’s two-year-old filly pacing crop here in the Prairie State on Wednesday night as a field of eight youngsters went postward in the $6,000 Egyptian Grande Stake.

Fresh off an impressive win in the second of two qualifying efforts, the Mike Einhaus-owned Dune In Red posted an impressive 5 ¼ length romp in a national seasons best of 1:55.4 with Mike Oosting at the controls.

Hustled away from post position seven, the chestnut daughter of Duneside Perch-She Has The Look landed in third as Special Rose (John Roberts) led the field through an opening quarter in 29.2.

Looking like a seasoned veteran, Oosting then maneuvered his filly to the outside where she quickly shot to the top leading the field through middle splits of 59.1 and 1:28.1 while beginning to put distance between herself the rest of the field.

With nothing but open ground in front of her Dune In Red then flew home in a strong 27.1 to seal the deal on an eye-catching debut. Incredible Filly (Dave Magee) turned a ground saving trip into a second place check while Special Rose finished third.

From the first crop of Duneside Perch the Robert Einhaus-trained miss was a $7,700 yearling purchase and judging by her effort on Wednesday night that price looks like it may have been quite a bargain!
