The ol’ black gold is one of the foundational pillars of this great country, so it’s only right that the Black Gold Stakes is one of the foundational pillars of the action at Fair Grounds this weekend, in which the stable’s Pixelate is a leading contender.
A past winner of the Central Park Stakes, Pixelate is a 4-1 shot under Mitchell Murrill in the 1 1/16th mile race on the turf. Pixelate is drawn 6 of 6.
