10-YEAR-OLD STORMY SURGE NOTCHES SECOND WIN IN TWO WEEKS
Stormy Surge, a 10-year-old gelding from the barn of Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, scored his second victory in two weeks when he outran his rivals down the stretch to win the fifth race at Golden Gate Fields Thursday.
Stormy Surge won a $3,200 claimer on Nov. 22 when he came from last in a field of seven to win going away. On the strength of that victory, Stormy Surge was sent off as the 7-5 favorite in Thursday's $4,000 claiming event and the veteran didn't disappoint his backers.
