Fair Grounds: Inside-speed bias may give Heitai edge over Delaunay in Kenner


Delaunay rose from the claiming ranks to become one of the best sprinters in the country during the first half of 2013. He didn’t race from early August to late January, but demonstrated in his comeback start, a fast, convincing victory in the Gaudin Memorial at Fair Grounds, that his old electricity still crackled. Even so, Delaunay might have his work cut out attempting to win the $100,000 Duncan Kenner Stakes for the second year in a row Saturday at Fair Grounds.
