Lone Star: Key Race Brewing?


An turf allowance route run April 24 at Lone Star could become a key race by the end of the day. Shoot It's War, who was second in the race, returned to win a first-level allowance here Sunday. And Guilty Plea, who was third, is to run later this afternoon at Louisiana Downs, in the seventh race. The April 24 race was won by stakes winner Productive Envoy.

In the upcoming third race, note that No. 5 and No. 9 both threw their riders in the post parade for the maiden claimer. There were no injuries, and after a bit of coaxing, the horses accepted the riders again and are now warming up with the field.
