After battling for the lead all the way, Stormin Charlotte held on to edge stalkers Spring Spirit and Thinking of Mom in the Friday opener at the GP West meet.
Reagan's Odyssey, who was dueling with Stormin Charlotte until mid stretch, finished fifth in the one mile turf race--a $20,000 claimer for fillies and mares 3-YO and up.
Stormin Charlotte won in 1:39.10 on the course listed as firm. Miguel Vasquez rode that four-year-old filly for trainer Michael Yates. It was her fourth win in 16 career starts.
