Destin works half-mile for stakes debut in Lecomte


Todd Pletcher worked Destin a half-mile in company Saturday at Palm Beach Downs and said Sunday that Destin is on track to ship by van to Fair Grounds on Thursday for the Grade 3, $200,000 Lecomte Stakes. Destin drew post 13 for the race, his stakes debut, but should move in three slots since Indygo Breeze and Battle Tap are expected to be scratched in favor of a Jan. 18 allowance and Noble Thought was injured while working Saturday.
