Louisiana-breds line up for evenly matched optional claimer


Friday’s $29,500 first-level allowance feature brings together an evenly matched group of Louisiana-breds. Witch Hunt, fourth in the Lafayette Stakes June 21, could be a slight favorite in the 5 1/2-furlong affair. The Brett Brinkman charge picked up a non-winners-of-two victory for a $20,000 claiming price in his only other start here this season. Jansen Melancon has the return call.
