Bunker Hill scores a hard fought victory in Go for the Green Stakes
After a long battle in the stretch run, Flying Dutchman Stable's Bunker Hill, with Rafael Mojica, Jr., prevailed by a head over Aspiring Nick, with Mario Pino, in the $100,600 Go for the Green Juvenile Stakes at Delaware Park. It was another 7 ¼-lengths back to Silent Shot, with Luis Garcia, in third. The 2-year-old stake was originally scheduled for the turf, but transferred to the main track due to the rain showers in the region yesterday.
Bunker Hill covered the mile and a sixteenth in 1:48.36 over a fast main track and returned $6.80 as the second choice. Aspiring Nick was the slight 2-to-1 favorite in the field of seven.
