Big Big Easy, Control Stake top field of juveniles for Jean Lafitte


Last year, the Jean Lafitte proved to be the key prep for the Grade 3, $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot, as the winner, Rise Up, returned a month later to take the meet’s richest race. Saturday night’s $200,000 Jean Lafitte drew eight horses aspiring to pull the same double, including Churchill Downs allowance winner Big Big Easy and promising maiden winner Control Stake from the barn of Rise Up’s trainer, Tom Amoss.
