Voodoo Spell a win machine in starter allowance ranks


Voodoo Spell won the eighth race at Fair Grounds on Thursday. Of course he did. The race was a turf sprint written for $5,000 starter-allowance horses or $10,000 claimers, and Voodoo Spell is virtually unbeatable in races like that. On Thursday, he moved to the lead more than a furlong out with the greatest of ease, but, being Voodoo Spell, he decided that his work was done, immediately putting on the brakes before doing just enough to win by a half-length.
