Zarb's Luck cuts back at Delta


Zarb's Luck, who won the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Sprint at Fair Grounds in December, runs Sunday night in the $50,000 Cajun Express at Delta Downs in Vinton, La. The one-turn, five-furlong race is for statebreds.

Zarb's Luck raced at two turns in his last race. He was a close third after setting most of the pace at a mile in the $150,000 Gold Cup at Delta. Guy Smith rides for trainer Edward Johnston.

* Jockey Ronald Ardoin, who hit his right wrist on the starting gate before the seventh race last Friday, will be out two weeks with a deep bruise and will return at Lone Star Park, according to his agent, Shawn Bergquist.
