Louisiana Downs: Doctor Mike rallies to victory


BOSSIER CITY, La. - Doctor Mike rallied strongly on the outside down the stretch to pull off an upset in the $30,000 Island Whirl Handicap. That Tat, heavily favored along with entrymate Grey Velvet, gave ground grudgingly to the winner to finish second.

Doctor Mike ($33) won by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:22.53 for the seven furlongs over a fast track.
