Mountaineer: Gin and Sin hangs on


Despite drifting twice in the stretch after gaining command, Gin and Sin ($4.60) hung on to defeat Doc D by a neck in the $75,000 Memorial Day Handicap.

In the co-featured Decoration Day Handicap for fillies and mares, Salzurita ($5.80) cruised to a 2 1/2-length victory.

Both races were contested at one mile over the muddy main track after being originally scheduled for 7 1/2 furlongs on turf.
