NEAR DAM goes gate-to-wire at Dortmund

She might have been the only horse to return from the track with a clean face. The Peter Schiergen trained Near Dam delivered a fine gate-to-wire run over 1950m on Dortmund's all-weather track today. Following a series of placings, everything clicked into place today for the four-year-old, who was ridden to a solid two-length win by veteran jockey William Mongil.
