A pair of statebred allowances that serve as co-features seem to give off the impression that Fair Grounds racing officials took a thinly veiled &ldquo;You can&rsquo;t fight the Super Bowl&rdquo; approach when carding nine races for Sunday.\r\nTrue, Sunday will be nothing like last year in New Orleans, where citizens went absolutely wild in anticipating and celebrating a Super Bowl victory by their beloved Saints. Yet the National Football League behemoth clearly overshadows all else, and the result at Fair Grounds is a rather ordinary Sunday card that appears to concede as much.\r\nThe first co-feature comes early in the day as the second race, when Smoothcideup will try to use an encouraging recent third-place finish in trying to register his first win in more than a year. Bred and owned by Earl Bellamy and trained by Morris Nicks, Smoothcideup will break from post 1 under Richard Eramia in the $43,000, second-level allowance scheduled for a mile on the turf. Seven of the nine Louisiana-breds in the race, including Smoothcideup, are entered for a $25,000 claiming tag as permitted by the optional race condition.\r\n&ldquo;It looks like he could go forward off that last race,&rdquo; Nicks said. &ldquo;Naturally, the race has got to stay on turf for me to run, because that&rsquo;s what he wants. I do think he&rsquo;s trying to get back to the form he had here last year for me, or at least he&rsquo;s acting like it.&rdquo;\r\nFirst to Bingo, with Anna Napravnik to ride, looks like another top contender in the second race. First to Bingo was second when finishing a head in front of Smoothcideup in a Jan. 15 race run under similar conditions.\r\nThe second co-feature goes as the eighth race and is for horses who have never won four races with an optional claiming price of $35,000. Canon Man would be tough to deny if he can repeat the Jan. 6 effort that carried him to victory for jockey Kerwin Clark and trainer Michelle Lovell. Eight are entered in the $45,000 sprint, with perhaps Heavenville looming the main threat.\r\nAlso on tap Sunday are a $47,000 maiden special weight sprint (race 6), a $39,000 statebred maiden sprint (race 3), and a $26,000 optional claiming route (race 4).\r\nFirst post Sunday is 12:40 p.m. Central, with the last race set for 4:46, less than an hour before Super Bowl kickoff.\r\n◗ Napravnik has appealed a seven-day riding suspension that was to have begun Sunday. A hearing with the stewards has not yet been scheduled.
