Dank won three of her first four starts in 2013 to establish herself as an elite female runner on the turf in both Europe and the United States.
Dank scored impressively in the Beverly D. Stakes, a Grade 1 race that is a "Win and You're In" challenge series race for the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, on Aug. 17. With the 4 1/4-length Beverly D. romp, Dank cemented a place in the Filly and Mare Turf for trainer Sir Michael Stoute. She went on to make an impressive 2 1/2 length win in the 2013 Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf. Her two U.S. wins earned the filly a landslide win as champion turf female with her owner saying he hoped to bring his filly back to the United States in 2014.
