Louisiana: Kalyrra much the best

Email

Kalyrra ($12.80) unleashed a powerful rally down the stretch under Luis Quinonez to easily win the $50,000 Senorita Stakes at Louisiana Downs.

Specific, part of a two-horse entry trained by Pat Mouton, finished second, almost eight lengths behind the winner, followed by Maria Pia and 8-5 co-favorite Sweet Idea. Aly's Vow, also 8-5, finished fifth.

Jill Parrott was the winning trainer of record. She has taken over the string of Kalyrra's regular trainer, Bret Calhoun, who is serving a brief suspension for an infraction in Texas earlier in the summer. - Jeff Taylor
