Fair Grounds: Bradester needs a new rider for New Orleans Handicap


Bradester’s running lines are a throwback to an earlier era, when horsemen made full use of allowance conditions before throwing a horse into stakes competition. Bradester always has run well, compiling a record of 4-3-1 from 9 starts, but only two of those starts have come in stakes competition: Bradester finished second last fall in the Indiana Derby, and last month won the Mineshaft Handicap by 1 3/4 lengths.
