First stakes horse for STORMIN FEVER

Derby Day at Churchill Downs – Three Chimneys Juvenile S. $114,000, 5 furlongs.

EAST BAY, who won her first start at Keeneland in April, elected to go up against the boys in her stakes debut and found the going tough.  Making a wide move on the turn she ran on well to be up for third place, in the process beating the favorite, Heckle, by a neck.  Heckle a Hennessy colt had just set a new track record at Keeneland for 4 1/2 furlongs in his first start.
