“Free PP’s for all Louisiana Downs Races” – Saturday, 09/06

Vicar’s in Trouble , at 9/5, is the 2014 GII Louisiana Derby and GIII Le Comte winner over at the Fair Grounds this past winter, but then came last in the GI Kentucky Derby. In his most recent outings has a pair of 3rd’s in the GIII Iowa Derby (a slopfest) and again up at Mountaineer in the GII West Virginia Derby surrendering the lead in the stretch to come up a few lengths short! Can go early or sit off a early pace.

Jessica’s Star , at 3/1, winner of the GIII Iowa Derby with a big sweeping move on the far turn to win that slopfest! Last time out, he dropped the decision late in the $300,000, Ohio Derby at Thistle Downs to a closing East Hall . Likes to sit just off the early pace most time then pounce!

 East Hall , at 5/1, was the late closer in that same $300,000, Ohio Derby at Thistle Downs last time with a solid late closing run for the up just in time win by a neck over some “off” going in that race! He also has graded starts in the GI Florida Derby, GII Tampa Bay Derby and GII Foutn of Yth Stakes on his resume! Mostly a mid-packer looking to grab a piece at the end, except for last time.

Announcement, at 12/1, is a fresh 3yo face coming in off 2 straight wins at the mdn and Alw levels, is short on experience in here but fresh legs can mean a lot this time of year. Stalker/ closer type!

All the rest of this group are local favors from the Louisiana 3yo circuit with Ide Be Cool , at 15/1, Victory Nor Defeat , at 8/1 and Alamo Heights , at 12/1 being the probable best of that bunch that you might want to consider mixing in to your dime super thinking!
