HURRICANE LAKE PREVAILS IN BLANKET FINISH
Hurricane Lake, receiving a strong ride from veteran jockey Frank Alvarado, rallied between front-runners Atomic Rule and Welcome Home Ryan in the final sixteenth of a mile and got up to win the $31,470 feature race in a photo finish Friday at Golden Gate Fields.
The 1 1/16-mile allowance test for 3-year-olds and up featured a blanket finish as the first five finishers were separated by less than two lengths. Hurricane Lake hit the wire a neck in front of Welcome Home Ryan, who took second by a head over Atomic Rule.
