Sea Vow wins the Big Drama Stakes by two lengths Saturday at Delta Downs.

Sea Vow won his third straight stakes Saturday night when making a rare start against open company in the $75,000 Big Drama at Delta Downs. He led throughout for a two-length win over Drakarys, while it was another three lengths back in third to Mr. N.

Sea Vow defeated fellow Louisiana-breds in his starts leading up to the Big Drama, taking the $150,000 Louisiana Legacy in November at Delta and the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day in December at Fair Grounds.

He was prominent throughout in both races and used the same tactics Saturday night, setting fractions of 23.59 seconds for the opening quarter and 47.95 for the half-mile. Sea Vow proceeded to cover seven furlongs around two turns on a fast track in 1:27.04.

Alexander Castillo was aboard for trainer Joey Foster.

For Sea Vow ($6), it was his fourth win from six career starts. He earned $45,000 for the victory to lift his career earnings to $218,240. Ronald Webb bred and owns Sea Vow, a son of Private Vow and the mare Victory At Sea, who was a stakes winner of $261,443.
