Star Guitar bounced back into form winning the Dec. 11 Louisiana Champions Day Classic at Fair Grounds, a race after a surprising fourth-place finish at his typical odds-on favoritism. Now, the king of the Louisiana-breds returns to the scene of that November loss, Delta Downs, for the $200,000 Premier Night Championship.\r\nStar Guitar is one of seven horses entered in the Championship, a race he has easily won the last two years, and the Championship is one of six stakes races on a showcase for Louisiana-breds. Add in four more starter-allowance stakes, and total stakes purses on the night total $950,000.\r\nThat&rsquo;s a little less coin than millionaire Star Guitar, 6, has banked in a 21-start career for the Brittlyn Stables and trainer Al Stall. Star Guitar has won 15 times and proven nearly unbeatable in statebred-restricted competition. Facing Louisiana-breds, Star Guitar had won 12 times in 13 tries before the Nov. 5 Gold Cup at Delta, but he finished a flat fourth with no apparent excuse that night. Stall still doesn&rsquo;t know what went wrong in that race, but Star Guitar wasted little time getting back to this old ways, winning the Champions Day Classic at Fair Grounds by four lengths.\r\n&ldquo;I&rsquo;m not worried about anything,&rdquo; Stall said. &ldquo;His works have been great. Every single gallop has been great.&rdquo;\r\nSnug won the Nov. 5 Gold Cup at Delta and was no match for Star Guitar while second last out at Fair Grounds. My Star Runner, 1 for 1 over the Delta surface, figures to set the pace in the Championship, if he starts, but the horse was cross-entered in the $100,000 Premier Night Sprint and could opt for that easier spot.\r\nDistaff: Superior Storm may be vulnerable\r\nWhile Star Guitar hinted last month that his November loss was a one-race aberration, Superior Storm, the millionaire mare from the same crop as Star Guitar, has shown more pervasive signs of decline. Superior Storm managed to win the Magnolia Stakes by a neck on the Nov. 5 card at Delta, but she was a well-beaten second last out in the Champions Day Ladies and may be vulnerable again Saturday night in the $150,000 Premier Night Distaff.\r\nSuperior Storm is one of 10 in the main body of the one-mile Distaff, with an 11th entrant, Zarb&rsquo;s Ballerina, stuck on the also-eligible list. Among Superior Storm&rsquo;s challengers are Ladyzarbridge, the filly who beat her on Champions Day at Fair Grounds; Harlie&rsquo;s Dream, a fast-closing second to Superior Storm in the Magnolia; and Little Polka Dot, whose best race among three recent starts was her lone start at Delta.\r\nPrince: Loranger Native familiar with track\r\nWhen odds-on Fair Grounds shipper Flash Mash flopped in a Delta stakes race last month, trainer Mike Stidham could find no reason for the filly&rsquo;s poor performance other than the Delta racing surface itself. So, Stidham has taken measures to avoid a recurrence of that situation. On Jan. 28, he shipped the promising 3-year-old Loranger Native from Fair Grounds to Delta for a five-furlong work on Jan. 29. The trial run complete, Loranger Native returned to New Orleans later the same day but is back and looking like a significant factor in the $100,000 Premier Night Prince.\r\nLoranger Native makes his first start for Stidham and first since being privately purchased by Peter Redekop. At Louisiana Downs late last summer, Loranger Native debuted with a 3 1/4-length win over Su Casa G Casa &ndash; a starter in the Prince and one of the best members of his Louisiana-bred crop &ndash; and followed up that win with a blowout victory in a $100,000 Louisiana Stallion stakes. He will be asked to race seven furlongs around two turns coming back from a layoff of more than four months, but Loranger Native has been working steadily and looks ready.\r\nSu Casa G Casa exits a second-place finish against open stakes horses in the $250,000 Jean Laffitte on Jan. 14 at Delta, while unbeaten Populist Politics won a division of the Louisiana Futurity last out at Fair Grounds.\r\n◗ Reyina benefited from a track bias winning the Champions Day Lassie in December at Fair Grounds, but familiar foes Tensas Punch, Sweet Ruston, and Cat&rsquo;s Production might have an edge going two turns in the seven-furlong, $100,000 Premier Night Starlet.\r\n◗ Delta-loving John Charles will attempt to win the $100,000 Premier Night Sprint for the third year in a row and might offer square odds, despite his past success in the race.\r\n◗ The $100,000 Matron could be headed for a pace meltdown, with a bevy of front-runners entered in the five-furlong race. Cajun Conference might be the one to take advantage.
