Campaigned by Tom Maher and Paul Luedemann, Tipsy Girl B went 350 yards in :17.789, earning a 96 speed index. Cristian Esequda rode the brown filly for trainer Jason Olmstead.

Bob Morehouse Stakes
by Michael Compton
In a near repeat of his winning effort in the Bob Morehouse Stakes at Canterbury Park last year, Dickey Bob once again led wire-to-wire to success-
fully defend his crown in the $38,600 event for Minnesota-breds on July 27.
With Julian Serrano in the irons for trainer Jason Olmstead, Dickey Bob broke alertly and opened a 1/2-length lead on Jess Doin Time. He maintained his lead through the lane and fought off a late chal- lenge from Jess Doin Time to defeat her by a head
at the finish. In winning the Bob Morehouse Stakes for the second year in a row, Dickey Bob stopped the clock in a lively :17.542, earning a 104 speed index.
With the win, Dickey Bob increased his bankroll to $166,654 and is now a winner in 10 of 20 starts. Last year at 3, the brown gelding demonstrated his affinity for the strip at Canterbury Park, rattling off 3 consecutive stakes wins at the track.
Lunderborg LLC bred Dickey Bob out of Paint Or More, winner of the North Central QHRA Futurity as well as the Canterbury Park Derby. She has produced 100% stakes winners from two starters, including top earner PYC Jess Bite Mydust, who has won four stakes races.
Olmstead, who trained four of the seven entrants, also saddled the runner-up and third place finishers in the race. Jess Doin Time (Apollitical Jess-Lenas Rare Lady), a multiple stakes winner, is a homebred for Tom Pouilot and was ridden by Ry Eiklebberry.
Finishing third was PYC Jess Bite Mydust (Apollitical Jess-Paint Or More), a full brother to the winner, owned and bred by Bruce and Judy Lunderbord’s Lunderborg LLC and ridden by Cristian Esqueda.
Streak N Sparks (Azoom-Streak N Sierra), Polar Xpress (Freighttrain B-Zoomshakalaka) and Curious James (Ivory James-Takin On the Crunch) completed the order of finish. DB Quick Sam was scratched.
