For the second consecutive time, Brilliant Racing Partnership I & Tagg Team Racing’s Yes It’s Ginger ran her eyeballs out, only to finish second. In doing so, she became the second horse in the short history of Brilliant Racing to eclipse the $100,000 mark in career earnings. Back sprinting on turf, Ginger popped the gate like she always does, and made the lead under jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. After facing some early pressure from the longshot Vomba, Ginger put her away and drew clear at the top of the stretch, only to get run down in the final strides by the Al Stall, Jr.-trained graded stakes placed filly In Good Spirits, who was cutting back in distance following a runner-up performance in the Pago Hop at Fair Grounds. She earned a career-high 84 Beyer speed figure for her efforts, and the 89 Bris number equals her best ever. After winning back-to-back races this summer at Ellis Park, Yes It’s Ginger has now finished second in consecutive races. Two races back in an off-the-turf race at Fair Grounds, she lost one of the toughest photo finishes EVER. She’s better on turf, but the fact that Ginger also runs well on dirt makes her a duel threat.
