Shezacrazygirl entered in two spots


NEW ORLEANS - Shezacrazygirl has won a pair of Louisiana-bred stakes in her four-race career and would be the favorite in the $60,000 Crescent City Oaks for statebreds on Friday, but she is also entered the same day in the Fair Grounds Oaks, and is more likely to go in that far more difficult spot, according to Al Stall Jr., who trains Shezacrazygirl for the Red Oak Stable of John Brunetti.

"Right now, it's the Fair Grounds Oaks," Stall said at his barn on Wednesday morning. "She'd be a big favorite in the Crescent City Oaks. A win in that race would be worth about $36,000. If you run third in the Fair Grounds Oaks, it's $33,000, but you'd have the black-type of being placed in a Grade 2 stakes race. She's sitting on a good race, so I think we're going to take a chance."

Atticus Kristy making 67th start

One of the most popular horses on this circuit, the 9-year-old gelding Atticus Kristy, will make the 67th start of his career in Saturday's fifth race, an optional-claiming turf sprint in which Atticus Kristy is entered for a $40,000 claiming price.

Atticus Kristy is now trained by Bret Calhoun, who claimed him for $40,000 last fall at Keeneland. A former stakes winner, Atticus Kristy has won 14 races, 13 on turf, 10 in sprints.

"He's one of the pets back here," Calhoun said. "He's doing good. It was a rough winter. We couldn't run him because the races kept getting rained off the turf. There hasn't been any consistency."
