Louisiana Downs: Half to Ide Like a Double meets winners


Old Bushmill, who is a half-brother to Ide Like a Double, a multiple stakes winner of $585,283, will meet winners for the first time in the upcoming third race at Louisiana Downs. The first-level allowance on turf is for 3-year-olds and up bred in Louisiana.

Other runners of note in the field include Daily Miracle, who is a half-brother to multiple Louisiana-bred stakes winner Milwaukee Miracle, and Ethanhaul, whose half-brother, Z Storm, is a Louisiana-bred stakes winner of $395,130.

Another contender, Storm Half, is a half-brother to Viva Pentelicus, who was a 17-time winner on the grass. Viva Pentelicus was bred in Florida by the late John Franks, for whom the turf course at Louisiana Downs is named. Franks, an Eclipse Award-winner, was a resident of Shreveport, La.
