Gathering Dreams rolls by five at River


CINCINNATI - Gathering Dreams was kept off the early pace and came flying in the stretch to win the $55,000 Cincinnatian at River Downs on Sunday. Trained by Joe Shuman, Gathering Dreams won by five widening lengths over the River Downs turf course, going 1 1/16 miles.

Jockey Christian Pilares had Gathering Dreams fourth in the field of seven Ohio-accredited 3-year-old fillies early, before asking for her best in the stretch - and she responded, running down pacesetting Lipstick N' Lace. The final time over a firm turf course was 1.46.20. Lipstick N' Lace was 7 1/2 lengths in front of Poker Diva in third. Gathering Dreams returned $9.60 to win.
