The Pickett Factor eyes Louisiana Downs stakes


The Pickett Factor might have positioned himself for a shot at stakes competition last Friday with a powerful second-level allowance win at Louisiana Downs. He was making his two-turn debut, and after tracking the pace early, the 3-year-old won by 5 3/4 lengths over older horses, earning a career-high Beyer Speed Figure of 85.
