Reflector surges from last to first for Need For Speed score


OPELOUSAS, La. – In a thrilling stretch run, Reflector charged from last to first to capture Saturday night’s $60,000 Need For Speed Stakes at Evangeline Downs, kicking down the 6-5 favorite Quick Dagger in the final strides. Ty’s Bandit staged a rally of his own up the rail to dead heat Quick Dagger for the place, three-quarters of a length behind the winner. D’cajun Cat finished a head back in fourth, followed closely by the veteran Gantry, who was another head back in fifth in the five-furlong dash on the turf.
