Dynamic Time (green cap), ridden by Tracy Hebert turns for home in front in the A.L. "Red" Erwin at Louisiana Downs.

Dynamic Time relished the move to both two turns and the Louisiana-bred ranks on Monday, when he powered to a 4 1/4-length win over 1-2 favorite Smitty’s Moonshine in the $150,000 A.L. “Red” Erwin at Louisiana Downs.

The race was one of four restricted stakes on the card worth a cumulative $400,000.

Dynamic Time ($20.80) went to the lead at the start of the Erwin, which was run at about a mile on firm turf, and dueled with Prince of April through six furlongs in 1:12.49. He then shook that rival and pulled clear through the stretch to win in 1:37.06.

Tracy Hebert was aboard Dynamic Time for Vinery Stables and trainer Eric Heitzmann.

Dynamic Time was making a rare two-turn start in the Erwin, which was for 3-year-olds bred in Louisiana. He had run fifth in a $25,000 optional claiming race at five furlongs on turf when facing open company at Louisiana Downs on Aug. 27.

The filly counterpart to the Erwin was the $150,000 Elge Rasberry, and Nana Knows held off a strong late bid from Miss Sweet Dreams to win by three-quarters of a length. It was another length back in third to Tory’s Triumph.

Nana Knows ($4.60) tracked the pace in second, overtook leader Social Princess approaching the quarter pole, and went on to cover the about a mile on turf in 1:37.30.

Don Simington rode the winner for Robert Orth and Wes Hawley, who also trains Nana Knows.

She’s Yare was a stewards’ scratch in the paddock for being improperly shod, and at the time she was the even-money favorite for the Rasberry.

Heza Rainbow wins Razorback

Heza Rainbow was the lone winner heading into and coming out of the $50,000 Razorback Futurity for Arkansas-breds, a race in which he wired the field by three-quarters of a length.

Heza Rainbow ($3) covered the six furlongs for 2-year-olds in 1:12.96. One start earlier, he won a maiden special weight at Louisiana Downs. Iram Diego was aboard for Richard P. Hogue Jr. and trainer Eddie Ruiz.

In the $50,000 Lady Razorback for 2-year-old fillies bred in Arkansas, recent maiden winner All About Allie ($4) rolled to a 4 ¼-length win over Calamity Jane. She covered six furlongs in 1:12.74. Shane Laviolette was aboard for Sanders Brothers and trainer David Whited.
