Fair Grounds: Superior Storm, inferior odds

Email

Superior Storm has been favored in Louisiana-bred stakes races since, oh, time immemorial, but it was Little Polka Dot who was favored until about 8 minutes to post fort he Louisiana Champions Day Ladies. It's now Superior Storm 7-5, LPD 2-1, but that is a change over historical precedent.

Grey Papillon made the lead and absolutely destroyed the Champs Day starter in race 5, but deep closer Make It Roses won the day's other T'bred race, an La-bred MSW sprint, race 4. As of right now, no bias for Champions Day.

Fast and firm, by the way. Some cloud cover, so keep an eye out for rain.
