Look for Red Lifesaver on front end


BOSSIER CITY, La. - An evenly matched group of nine fillies and mares line up for Sunday's $50,000 Delicada Stakes.

, third in the Suthern Accent Stakes and fourth in the Fleur de Lis Stakes earlier this season, may be a slight favorite in the 1 1/16-mile Delicada. She has been a model of consistency for trainer Steve Asmussen, and her front-running style should fit nicely in Sunday's headliner, as there is not much early foot in the field.

A Victory Gallop filly, Red Lifesaver breezed a bullet half-mile in 47.80 seconds Thursday morning and appears to be sitting on a top effort. Gerard Melancon rides at 117 pounds.

returns to the main track Sunday following a seventh-place finish on the turf in her last start. She was second at a big price in the Fleur de Lis on the dirt in her previous start, and there is little doubt she will be on her best surface in the Delicada. Rico Flores will once again ride.

Trainer Howard Scarberry will send out the entry of Took Out and Tincan Too. Took Out is coming off an even effort on turf in her first start of the year. She has two wins and a second in three previous tries over the local main track. Luis Quinonez will be in the saddle.

Tincan Too ran an improving third in her most recent start, a second-tier allowance race, and lacked room turning for home. Scarberry will give Guy Smith a leg up.

, victorious for trainer Brent Davidson in the Allen Bogan Memorial Stakes for Texas-breds on July 9 at Lone Star, wheels back in two weeks as she makes her local debut. She had trained well over the local surface prior to her last start, including the fastest five furlongs among 50 workers at the distance on July 3. Carlos Gonzalez has the call on Slewpy's Storm, the 121-pound highweight.

Boomboomgirl, third in the Fleur de Lis last month and a three-time winner locally, will also get some looks in her second start back after a freshening late in the spring. Kirk LeBlanc gets the return call.

Pampered, Lucky Tunnel, and Bridal Gal complete the field.
