WYNNEWOOD, OK—Grade 3 winner Eos A Political Win SI 102 will join the Dunn Ranch stallion roster for 2019, the farm announced today. He is expected to continue to race through the end of the year. A fee has not yet been announced.

He posted a runner-up effort in the Speedhorse Futurity(G3) and was third in the Heritage Place Derby(G3) and Evangeline Downs Futurity(G3). The bay colt also qualified for the Black Gold 350 Championship Futurity(RG3), Remington Park Oklahoma-Bred Futurity(RG2) and Remington Park Oklahoma-Bred Derby.

"I have watched this colt for two years and have been impressed how much he gives in every start—proof when he's only finished off the board twice in 16 starts," Matt Dunn said this week. "He has won or placed in stakes races on five different racetracks in three states."

Eos A Political Win was the fastest qualifier for the Oklahoma Futurity and the Evangeline Futurity.

Dunn and his wife Bendi, who own Dunn Ranch in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, purchased an interest inEos A Political Win after last week's Dash For Cash Derby.
