Wind Chill Factor may be primed to peak in Ladies Sprint


In a Nov. 22 allowance race for Louisiana-bred female sprinters at Fair Grounds, the filly Wind Chill Factor fell into a lovely tracking trip, came out for her run at the top of the stretch, and promptly lost all her momentum, crossing the finish line a one-paced third. In a vacuum, the performance could have been termed disappointing, but that race was written as a prep for the Louisiana Champions Day Ladies Sprint, and what sane horseman would tighten the screws for a $43,000 allowance race with a $100,000 stakes three weeks later?
