Great Lakes: Rockem Sockem romps


Reigning Michigan horse of the year Rockem Sockem staked his claim on a repeat title with a 13-length win in the older male division of the Michigan Sire Stakes at Great Lakes Downs. Terry Houghton rode Rockem Sockem for trainer Bob Gorham. Gorham also trained both juvenile winners, Easy Ellie and Weatherstorm.

Mary Doser won three of the six Fire Stakes winners. Each of the six races in the series carried a purse of approximately $140,000.
