Gilman puts on a show in USTA Driving School
Kimberly Gilman's father told her to put on a show. She made it a winning one. Gilman teamed with professional harness racing driver Gareth Dowse to capture Sunday's U.S. Trotting Association Driving School exhibition race at Historic Track. "I kept telling myself not to go too fast," said an elated Gilman, who is from Exeter, New Hampshire. "At the top of the stretch, it was all I could do (not to urge the horse on). I just held right onto her and had a nice, easy finish. We were keeping track of the time together. I felt like I was going fast, but Gareth said I was right on the money."
