Inavanti proved a game winner today at Fair Grounds, battling to a neck victory under jockey Florent Geroux to give Mike Stidham yet another winner at the Louisiana course.
Owned by Twin Creeks Racing Stables and Brent Gasaway, Inavanti was breaking his maiden today. But for a long time, victory looked anything but assured. Still nearer last than first at the top of the stretch, Inavanti finished fast and late to claim first prize. Always there abouts in his races, Inavanti can progress from here – it wouldn’t be any surprise to see him follow up sooner rather than later.
