Hurricane Henri brought significant rainfall to Pennsylvania but could not dampen the 21st renewal of Pennsylvania’s Day at the Races. The Pennsylvania breeding program took center stage with five $100,000 stakes for state-breds. All five races were contested over the sloppy main track.

In the $100,000 Dr. Teresa Garofalo Memorial Stakes, Chub Wagon’s undefeated streak came to an end as she was caught late by Don’t Call Me Mary and jockey Paco Lopez. Trained by Todd Pletcher, the four-year-old daughter of El Padrino notched her fifth victory from ten career starts. Chub Wagon finished second and Cinnabunny rounded out the trifecta.

The $100,000 Mrs. Penny Stakes, taken off the turf and run at one mile and a sixteenth on the main track, was won by Precious and jockey Frankie Pennington. The front-running victress is a homebred daughter of Fed Biz for Newell Thoroughbreds LTD and is trained by John Servis.

In the $100,000 Storm Cat Stakes, sophomore I Am Redeemed earned his first stakes victory. The three-year-old son of Redeemed contested the early pace under jockey Abner Adorno and collared the front-running Lord Winsalot at the top of the stretch to prevail by 3 1/2 lengths for trainer Penny Pearce.

The $100,000 Marshall Jenney Handicap, taken off the turf and run at five furlongs on the sloppy main track, went to Admiral Abe. Admiral Abe, a five-year-old son of Midshipman, continued to dominate the state-bred ranks and delivered as the heavy favorite under Silvestre Gonzalez. Trained by Robert Mosco for Stefcon Racing, LLC, he earned his fifth win of the season.

The $100,000 Banjo Picker Stakes concluded the day and the favorite Fortheluvofbourbon gave jockey Paco Lopez his second win of the day. Trained by Michael Pino, the four-year-old gelded son of Bourbon Courage showed speed out of the gate and battled on gamely in the stretch to prevail by a neck over a fast-closing Golden Candy.
