Hurricane Ike takes Fair Grounds’ Tenacious Handicap

Ike and Dawn Thrash’s Hurricane Ike went to the lead and stayed there all the way in the $75,000 Tenacious Handicap at the Fair Grounds, winning by a neck. It’s the second stakes win of the year for the 5-year-old Florida-bred son of Graeme Hall, now 27-6-6-4 with earnings of $568,070. He was sold for $115,000 by Southern Breeze Ranch, Agent, at the 2008 OBS August Sale.
