Thrilling Finish Vaults Gingermore over $100,000

When Gingermore headed into the stretch in third place in last night's fifth race at Canterbury Park, it didn't appear as though the daughter of Two Step Salsa had any chance to improve her position heading to the wire. But Ry Eikleberry shifted the 6-year-old mare into another gear and she picked up about four lengths, nailing the two leaders right on the wire in a thrilling, driving finish. She captured the one-mile, $30,000 allowance optional claimer by a head and took down the $18,000 winner's check. The $40,000 OBS April 2-year-old added her name to her sire's $100,000-plus club at $115,281 on a record of 6-5-5 in 30 starts.
