Louisiana Derby: War Story tries to turn tables on International Star


NEW ORLEANS – The lack of mistakes made by International Star in the Lecomte and Risen Star stakes resulted in victories. Mistakes made by War Story in both those races cost him his best chance of winning. The margin between those two isn’t far off to begin with, and trainer Tom Amoss is hoping the work done with War Story in recent weeks will close the gap, even reverse it, when they meet for the third straight time in the Grade 2, $750,000 Louisiana Derby on Saturday here at Fair Grounds.
