Opening Day High

Monmouth Park's opening day was a rousing success, with attendance up 74%, and a handle of over 9 million, more than double that of last year.

In the co-feature, the Elkwood Stakes, Get Stormy , by Stormy Atlantic, kept his streak going from last year to 5 consecutive wins, 4 of them in stakes. His front running style on Monmouth's glib turf course, gave him his first win of his 4 year old campaign. Trained by Tom Bush, and ridden by Eddie Castro, Get Stormy made every pole a winning one and finished the 1 and 1/16 miles in 1.40.04.
