Philadelphia Park track report


He needed a substantial class drop to do it, but the grand old man of trainer Scott Lake's massive stable, 13-year-old gelding Stormy Do, won for the fourth time this season in Monday's sixth race at Philadelphia Park.

Facing $5,000 claimers, Stormy Do went to the front in the six-furlong sprint, opened up a 2 1/2-length lead at the eighth pole, and held on by a half-length.

It was Stormy Do's first win since he was re-claimed for $10,000 by Lake in early May. Lake lost the horse for $12,500 in March.

Stormy Do is now 4 for 11 this season, 4 for 8 lifetime at Philly Park, and 26 for 117 in his career.
