Fear the Cowboy may get shot at Essex Handicap


Fear the Cowboy, the winner of last year’s Evangeline Downs Mile, will be considered for the $250,000 Essex Handicap on March 18 at Oaklawn, said trainer Efren Loza Jr. Loza said he is monitoring the potential field for the Essex, which shares a card with the Rebel and Azeri stakes.
