String King seeks repeat in Louisiana Cup Turf Classic


String King has been one of the premier turf horses based in Louisiana over the past several years, and on Saturday, he will be out to nail down the eighth stakes win of his career in the $75,000 Louisiana Cup Turf Classic. The 1 1/16-mile race he captured a year ago is one of eight restricted stakes on a program that also includes a Super Derby prep, the $100,000 Prelude. Together, the stakes are worth $700,000.
