Thunder Gulch Tunes Up

SUNDAY, SEPT. 24, 1995

Kentucky Derby winner Thunder Gulch rallied from fifth to win the $400,000 Kentucky Cup Classic and partly atone for the earlier loss of stablemate Serena’s Song at Turfway Park.

The win was the fourth straight for Thunder Gulch, keeping him on target for a showdown with Cigar in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Oct. 28 at Belmont Park.

Mariah’s Storm blew by 1-5 favorite Serena’s Song on the far turn and went on to win the $200,000 Grade II Turfway Budweiser Breeders’ Cup by 5-1/2 lengths.
