Evangeline: El Vino merits slight edge in sprint feature


Friday night’s featured eighth race at Evangeline Downs drew a field of six sprinters slated to go six furlongs. The second-level optional $20,000 claimer carries a $26,000 purse.

El Vino, no worse than second in four starts since relocating from the West Coast late last year, could rule a slight favorite. He comes in off a pair of victories at Sam Houston, the latest while running for a $35,000 claiming price.
