Fair Grounds: Ladyzarbridge upsets Ladies, second straight speed winner


Superior Storm did indeed go down in the Champions Day Ladies, and, indeed, it was Little Polka Dot who wound up being favored over the race's two-time winner. But victorious was Ladyzarbridge, a 10-1 shot who went straight to the lead and never was headed. She set splits of 24.02, 48.31, and 1:13.34, a seemingly moderate pace.  So, though that makes two straight front-end dirt-route winners, I'm not going to jump to any bias conclusions. Just yet, at least.

Take Me Home Too was 5-2 morning-line chalk in upcoming race 7, the Lassie, but sits on the board at 6-5 with five minutes to post.
