Dynamic Cat rallies to take Mrs. Penny

After running in 11th place early, Dynamic Cat overtakes All Dolled Up to win the Mrs. Penny.

Dynamic Cat, far back early, closed with a rush to overtake pacesetter All Dolled Up just before the wire in the Mrs. Penny, one of six stakes for Pennsylvania-breds on Saturday's program at Philadelphia Park.

The 4-year-old Dynamic Cat ($4.20), ridden by Victor Molina for trainer Jonathan Sheppard, was 11th of 12 after the first quarter-mile of the 1 1/16-mile Mrs. Penny and still had only two horses beaten a half-mile into the turf race for fillies and mares.

All Dolled Up, the 3-1 second choice coming off a pair of wins at 7 1/2 furlongs, held a two-length lead at the eighth pole before Dynamic Cat finished fastest of all to win by a half-length. The winner completed the distance on a firm course in 1:43.42.

Dynamic Cat, now 4 for 14 lifetime, had posted back-to-back wins over allowance runners at Keeneland's spring meet, then was given seven weeks off following a dull effort in the Grade 3 Mint Julep at Churchill Downs.

Overall, the six stakes, worth $50,000 apiece on what was billed as Pennsylvania's Day at the Races, were quite formful. Three of the winners paid $6 or less, and the highest-priced winner went off at 9-2.

In the other stakes:

* Valley of the Gods ($11.20), returning to a dirt sprint after a one-race experiment going long on turf, romped by 7 1/4 lengths over the 3-year-old S W Aly'svalentine in the Ambassador of Luck Handicap, a seven-furlong race for fillies and mares.

Valley of the Gods, ridden by Harry Vega for trainer Keith Lebarron, had finished third in this same race last year.

Roanoke's Best, the 9-5 favorite, finished fifth after flashing early speed.

* Shades of Sunny ($6) finally turned the tables on an old nemesis by sprinting clear to a 3 1/2-length win over 3-2 favorite Namequest in the Robert W. Camac Memorial, a five-furlong turf sprint.

Last season, Shades of Sunny finished a head behind Namequest in this same race, and also had to settle for second behind that runner in the Maryland Million Turf Sprint.

It was Shades of Sunny's first win since he captured a turf sprint stakes at Monmouth Park in July 2004.

* Nittany Express ($4.20), who lost a photo finish in his most recent start, won a bob at the wire with Yo to prevail by a head in the Iroquois Handicap at 1 1/16 miles.

* Senor Cielo Two ($9.60), who flashed speed and tired badly in a similar stakes three weeks ago, this time drew off to a 2 1/4-length win over 4-5 favorite Banjo Picker in the Devll's Honor Handicap at seven furlongs.

* Party Airs ($10), winless since September 2003, cruised to a 30-length victory in the first running of the Flatterer Handicap, a 2 1/16-mile race over hurdles.
