She'screative, who paid $4 Saturday night, has now won both of her starts.

Shes’creative came back on Eye Craft, then went on to a 2 1/4-length win in Saturday night’s $75,000 fillies division of the D.S. “Shine” Young Futurity at Evangeline Downs.

The race was one of two stakes on the card. Ready Prospector won his maiden in the colts and geldings division when he held off surging favorite I Want a Picture.

The D.S. “Shine” Young Futurity divisions were 5 1/2-furlong races restricted to horses bred in Louisiana.

She’screative ($4) set fractions of 22.31 seconds for the opening quarter and 46.19 seconds for the half-mile. She lost her advantage in the stretch, but came back along the inside and went on to cover the distance on a track labeled wet-fast in 1:06.53.

“She’s game,” said Dusty Shepherd, who was aboard She’screative for trainer J.R. Caldwell.

She’screative has now won both of her starts. She launched her career June 28 with an 8 1/2-length maiden special weight win over open company.

She’screative is a daughter of Creative Cause who races for her breeder, Thomas L. Holyfield. She’screative is out of the mare She’s a Rebel Too, making her a half-sister to Mo’ Green, a Grade 3 winner who is scheduled to run Sunday at Monmouth Park in the Molly Pitcher.

She’screative on Saturday morning was entered in the $50,000 Louisiana Cup Juvenile Fillies to be run Aug. 5 at Louisiana Downs, but after the “Shine” Young trainer Caldwell said the filly is being pointed to the $50,000 Evangeline Downs Princess on Sept. 2.

Hot Mamma, who finished fifth in the “Shine” Young, also was entered in the six-furlong Louisiana Cup Juvenile Fillies, as were “Shine” Young scratches Fiesty Embrace, Girls Life, Lucky Taylor, and Emily’s Lollipop.

Ready Prospector ($22.60) was always prominent in his division of the “Shine” Young and was able to hold off the charge of I Want a Picture by a head. It was another 4 3/4 lengths back to Cajun Creed in third.

Ready Prospector covered the distance on a wet-fast track in 1:05.46. Gerard Melancon was aboard the winner for trainer Oscar Modica. Ready Prospector came into the “Shine” Young off a runner-up finish in a maiden special weight against open company June 29 at Evangeline.

Modica said plans for the horse’s next start will be made after discussions with owner Virginia Lazenby. Ready Prospector is a son of Custom For Carlos.

Both Ready Prospector and She’screative earned $45,000 for their wins Saturday.
