Caught in the Rain ($4) wins the Mrs. Penny by 6 lenghts at Philadelphia Park.

Trainer Lupe Preciado, along with jockeys Tony Black and Victor Molina, were the big winners during Pennsylvania's Day at the Races.

Preciado saddled two winners in the series of five stakes for statebreds worth $50,000 apiece. Black and Molina each rode one winner for Preciado, and both jockeys won another stakes.

For the second straight year, Caught in the Rain ($4) won the Mrs. Penny, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for fillies and mares, scoring by six lengths under Molina.

Preciado and Black also teamed to win the seven-furlong Devil's Honor with Hero's Glow ($14.40), who went wire to wire to beat Valleyman by three-quarters of a length.

Molina's other win came when Namequest ($7.60) got up to win a three-horse photo in the five-furlong Robert Camac Memorial on turf. Namequest finished a head in front of Shades of Sunny, who finished a head in front of Sir Echo.

Black's first stakes win of the card came when he rode Prince Joseph ($2.60) to a 3 1/2-length victory in the 1 1/16-mile Lil E. Tee for 3-year-olds.

In the other stakes, A Vision in Gray romped by 4 1/2 lengths in the seven-furlong Ambassador of Luck for fillies and mares.
