INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Include Me Out won the $77,070 Desert Stormer Handicap by three-quarters of a length Sunday at Betfair Hollywood Park in her first start since Nov. 2.
Ridden by Joe Talamo, Include Me Out ran six furlongs on Cushion Track in 1:10.32 and paid $10.40, $5.40 and $2.80.
Shumoos returned $8.80 and $3, while Teddy’s Promise was another head back in third and paid $2.10 to show as the 4-5 favorite.
The victory was the eighth in a stakes race for Talamo at the spring-summer meet.
