Stormy Express prevails in three-horse photo


Stormy Express picked up her third straight stakes win on Saturday, when she held on to defeat Came West by a neck in the $50,000 El Dario for fillies and mares at Sunland Park. It was another head back in third to Miss Dolce.

Stormy Express ($13.60) tracked the pace in second in the early stages and went on to cover the 6 furlongs in 1:17.02. Jockey Anthony Cruz was aboard for Connie and Richard Snyder and trainer Jimmie Claridge.

Stormy Express had won the La Fiesta and the Fair Queen at the Downs at Albuquerque leading up to the El Dario.
