Fair Grounds: Dixie Beat, Yankee Gambler give Calhoun Louisiana Futurity exacta


Trainer Bret Calhoun had two starters in the $97,605 colts and geldings division of the Louisiana Futurity on Tuesday at Fair Grounds. Dixie Beat was supposed to be the pace stalker and Yankee Gambler the pace player. That’s not how things worked out at all, but things worked out fine for Calhoun, as Dixie Beat pressed the pace and held on to win by a neck over stretch-running Yankee Gambler, giving Calhoun a sweep of the exacta.
