Tee Brown hard to trust at short price


NEW ORLEANS – The win money poured in like a sudden New Orleans downpour, and when the gate sprang for the sixth race Nov. 29 at Fair Grounds, Tee Brown was the 3-5 favorite to beat six rivals in a second-level allowance for Louisiana-breds on turf. Jockey Colby Hernandez engineered a perfect trip, stalking dueling speed horses through a quick pace, and at the top of the stretch, he swung Tee Brown out to mow down the leaders – and got nothing. Tee Brown ran one-paced through the final furlong, finishing fourth and burning the bettors.
