Claimer Lucky Rave steps up in class in John Henry Stakes


OPELOUSAS, La. – What Saturday night’s $60,000 John Henry Stakes at Evangeline Downs lacks in star power, it more than makes up for in numbers. An overflow field of 13, including one also-eligible, was entered for the 1 1/16-mile turf test named for the racing legend who began his career at the old Evangeline Downs in nearby Carencro, La. And, as was the case in the early days of the namesake of Saturday night’s feature, there is some claiming form to deal with.
