Young rider Murray shows raw talent


NEW ORLEANS – It has happened quickly for apprentice rider Erica Murray. Last winter, she was exercising horses in New Orleans, still learning the ropes of the racetrack. A month into the 2015-16 Fair Grounds meet, Murray is a top-10 rider, with a record of 6-7-6 from 54 mounts through Thursday’s card.
