Tensas Harbor wins third straight stakes in Matron


OPELOUSAS, La. – Relishing the off-going, Tensas Harbor won her third stakes in a row Saturday night at Evangeline Downs, edging clear in the $60,000 Matron Stakes. Defending champ Hot Tempo lodged a rally inside the winner turning for home, only to settle grudgingly for second, a length behind the winner, followed by Synapse in third. Originally scheduled for a mile on the turf, the Matron was moved to a sloppy main track at the same distance following afternoon rains.
