Qatar’s Pearl might target Lieutenant Governors


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Trainer Rob Gilker is considering taking a shot at the $50,000 Lieutenant Governors with Qatar’s Pearl, who beat a good field of allowance horses last Sunday. Gilker claimed Qatar’s Pearl for $50,000 in 2012 with an eye on the Grade 3 British Columbia Derby where he finished seventh. He didn’t run last year due to suspensory problems, but he is certainly headed in the right direction with two straight wins.
