Ginger Punch (foaled April 23, 2003 in Florida) is an American Thoroughbred filly racehorse. Owned and bred by operations belonging to automotive parts magnate, Frank Stronach, she is out of the mare Nappelon and sired by the Canadian-bred Awesome Again, winner of his country's 1997 Queen's Plate and the 1998 Breeders' Cup Classic and who, as a sire, has produced four Breeders' Cup winners including the 2004 World Champion, Ghostzapper.
Trained by Bobby Frankel, Ginger Punch raced in Kentucky in May 2006 at Churchill Downs where she won her first race. She did not win again until October when she captured an allowance race at Keeneland Race Course.
Ginger Punch made her 2007 debut in April in the Grade II Madison Stakes on the Polytrack surface at Keeneland Race Course and finished second to Ventura, the winner of the 2008 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint race under jockey Rafael Bejarano. In May she won an allowance race at Churchill Downs then on June 16th at Belmont Park in New York she had difficult positioning under jockey David Flores but when she finally got clear made a strong late charge to finish second by a neck in the 1 1/16-mile Ogden Phipps Handicap.
