Midnight Storm proves uncatchable in Del Mar Derby


DEL MAR, Calif. – For the first five starts of his career, Midnight Storm never set foot on turf. He won once. He was moved this summer to the barn of trainer Phil D’Amato, who tried him on grass in an allowance race on Aug. 10. He won. D’Amato is a college graduate, smart guy. He ran him back on turf again.
