Today, Lake Local is the Stidham stable’s contender in the $75,000 Mardi Gras Stakes at Fair Grounds today, but first, let’s look at a nice winner yesterday for owners Phoenix Thoroughbred!
The 3-year-old Into Mischief filly Call on Mischief didn’t get the best of starts yesterday at Fair Grounds, bumped and banged coming out of the gates, but she soon got into stride and won quite impressively under Brian Hernandez. This was a nice confidence booster for a young filly with a bright future.
And now for today’s Mardi Gras stakes.
Drawn 1 of 13 in the 5 1/2 furlong sprint on the turf, Lake Local has the services of Brian Hernandez in the saddle and they’re a 12-1 shot on the Morning Line.
