Herbie D primed for British Columbia Cup Classic


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Trainer Robert Gilker gambled and won when he ran Herbie D in an optional $35,000 claiming race, which he won Aug. 9. Herbie D, the 2013 Longacres Mile winner, had never been eligible to be claimed, and the move could pay off in spades when Herbie D runs in the $50,000 British Columbia Cup Classic at Hastings on Friday night.
