The Pickett Factor prevails in Prelude Stakes


The Pickett Factor earned a fees-paid berth in next month’s Grade 2, $400,000 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs with an authoritative win in the track’s prep Saturday, the $100,000 Prelude Stakes. It was the third consecutive victory at the meet for The Pickett Factor, who won by 1 1/4 lengths over 4-5 favorite Allied Air Raid. It was another head back to Mobile Bay in third.
