April May Dune
April May Dune and driver Brian Carpenter pulled off the upset over eight other Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old pacing fillies in Thursday's $12,000 Juxtaposition Stake at Maywood Park.
The first two-year-old stake of the 2013 season at Maywood Park was contested on Thursday night and it provided plenty of fireworks as Mike Brink and Ed Teefey’s April May Dune staged a big rally to pull off the upset in the $12,000 Juxtaposition Stake.

Placed in mid-pack as the overwhelming 1-9 favorite Linda On My Mind (Mike Oosting) carved out splits of 28.4, 59.3 and 1:28, driver Brian Carpenter moved April May Dune first over as the field rolled under the finish wire for the first time.

Drawing to within a head of the pace setter as the state-bred fillies raced by the three-quarter-mile mark, the daughter of Duneside Perch-April Ruffles continued her assault on the leader as the field raced around the final turn.

Fit and fresh despite being outside for nearly 5/8th’s of a mile, the Mike Brink-trained miss overpowered the heavy favorite and steadily drew away from her rivals through the lane to make her career debut a winning one, reporting home with a 3 ¼ length verdict in 1:58.0. Perfectly Clear (Kyle Wilfong), a 47-1 outsider, rallied nicely to be the bridesmaid while Linda On My Mind held on for the show dough.

April May Dune returned $28.80, $12.40 and $4.20.
