The longshot Forest Lake scores in Starlet Stakes


OPELOUSAS, La. – The longshot Forest Lake battled for the early before drawing clear through the final furlong to win Saturday night’s $100,000 Starlet Stakes at Evangeline Downs. Golden Barbara finished two lengths back in second, and it was another two lengths farther back to Lady Emily Sage. The even-money favorite Joy of the Saints faded to seventh after contesting the issue early and suffered her first career defeat in four starts.
