Veteran Mares Lift Two Step Salsa Past $1 million

Two Step Salsa gained his 37th and 38th winners of 2017 and at the same time surpassed the $1 million mark in progeny earnings, led by wire-to-wire victories by two veterans from his first crop of runners who made their debuts in 2013. Echale Salsita added her name to the list of her sire's $100,000-plus earners with her one-half length score in a $41,650 starter optional claimer at 'about' one mile over the Suffolk Downs turf course. The victory was worth $20,000 and lifted the 6-year-old mare's earnings to $102,757 . . . At Camarero Race Track in Puerto Rico, a surface relished by many sons and daughters of Two Step Salsa, Leslie Two Step led every step of the way racing a mile over a muddy strip and reported home by 1 1/2 lengths to post her seventh career victory. The two wins helped Two Step Salsa's earnings jump to $1,020,356.
