Louisiana Downs: Quarter Horse wins Sprint


Just kidding.

Foreign Production, who is a blocky THOROUGHBRED son of Run Production, blitzed his rivals from the bell to win the $60,000 Sprint. Flashy Wise Cat, a deep closer, probably thought he was chasing a Quarter Horse through the lane when he caught a glimpse of Foreign Production's powerful hindquarters. Flashy Wise Cat proceeded to make up a lot of ground late, then galloped out past the winner.

Up next on the Louisiana Cup program is the $100,000 Oaks, which has been shortened in distance this year to seven furlongs after being held at a mile and a sixteenth. Shezacrazygirl has never been beaten at seven-eighths of a mile, with both of her wins coming in two-turn stakes at Delta Downs. This, of course, will be a one-turn race. Right now, she is 4-5.
