Mo Tom, Airoforce will duke it out again in Risen Star


NEW ORLEANS – Tom Amoss has been here before. He’s won the Lecomte Stakes in January at Fair Grounds four times. His first Lecomte winner, Fly Cry in 1994, came back to win the Risen Star Stakes, finished fifth in the Arkansas Derby, then didn’t race again until late July. Some Actor won the 1999 Lecomte but didn’t race again until the following September. Ron the Greek eventually would become one of the better older dirt-route horses in the world, but in 2010, after winning the Lecomte, he was only good enough to finish sixth in the Risen Star.
