Forest Lake, Believeinsomething hope Opelousas gets taken off turf

Email

There was a strong chance of thunderstorms in Opelousas, La., on both Wednesday and Thursday, which could mean good news for several leading contenders in the $60,000 Opelousas Stakes at Evangeline Downs on Friday night. The race for fillies and mares ages 3 and up is scheduled for one mile on turf, but if rain moves it to the main track, then the stakes-winning fillies Forest Lake and Believeinsomething might feel more at home.
