These 3-year-olds are right where they belong


This is the crazy season for young horses, with the start of the Triple Crown trail either already upon us or just around the next corner. Three-year-old fever makes a race like the featured sixth Friday at Fair Grounds, a first-level allowance also open to $50,000 claimers, must-see racing, but it will be surprising if this six-furlong dash throws up any real contenders for the 3-year-old route stakes in New Orleans.
