–  LEADING JOCKEY DIEGO SAENZ GETS A RIDING TRIPLE ON RICH NIGHT OF RACING –

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the 14th edition of Louisiana Premier Night on Saturday which included 10 stakes races and total purse money of more than $850,000 offered. The featured event on the card was the $150,000 Louisiana Premier Night Championship, which was won by Tigertail Ranch’s Mobile Bay, who went over the $1 million mark in career earnings with the victory. Mobile Bay is trained by Victor Arceneaux and was ridden by Diego Saenz, who had a riding triple on the night.

Mobile Bay broke sharply in the 1-1/16 mile Championship and took the lead after Grande Basin set the initial pace and went the opening quarter mile in 24.31 seconds. The eventual winner led the field of 10 onto the backstretch while going the half mile in 48.00 and three quarters in 1:12.49. When Mobile Bay reached the homestretch he was confronted by The Pickett Factor, who moved alongside the leader but could not get past and would up beaten by one length on the finish line. Fort Pulaski finished another 4-1/2 lengths behind the top pair in third.

Mobile Bay covered the distance over a fast track in 1:44.81.

The win by Mobile Bay marked the 10th triumph of his 25-race career and the $90,000 first-place prize put his career bankroll over the seven digit mark at $1,006,440.

Bred in Louisiana by his owner, Mobile Bay is a 5-year-old dark bay or brown horse by Lone Star Special out of the Out of Place mare Tranquility Bay.

Sent to the gate as the heavy favorite at odds of 4-5 on the tote board, Mobile Bay returned $3.60 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.20 to show. The Pickett Factor paid $5.20 to place and $3.40 to show. Fort Pulaski was worth $12.60 to show.

In other action on Louisiana Premier Night it was Underpressure winning the $100,000 LAPN Prince with jockey Diego Saenz in the saddle for trainer Chris Richard. The winner is owned by Mallory Greiner.

The $100,000 LAPN Starlet was annexed by Mr. Al’s Gal, who reported home in front with jockey Richard Eramia at the controls. Mr. Al’s Gal is owned by Brittlyn Stable, Inc. and is conditioned by Justin Jeansonne.

The $100,000 LAPN Matron was the scene of Sunny Oak’s latest score as she won easily with jockey Miguel Mena riding for trainer Edward Johnston. Sunny Oak is owned by Keith Plaisance.

This year’s $100,000 LAPN Distaff was taken by Maggi Moss’s Big World, who was ridden to victory by jockey Gerard Melancon. Big World is conditioned by Tom Amoss.

Icy Gentleman pulled an upset in the $100,000 LAPN sprint with jockey Jorge Guzman aboard for trainer Henry B. Johnson, Jr. The winner is owned by Ironwater Farms Joint Venture.

Night Parade was successful in this year’s $50,000 LAPN Ladies Starter with jockey Larry Taylor. Night Parade is owned by Rhonda Snodderly and is trained by Alex De Beauville.

The $50,000 LAPN Gentlemen Starter was won by Flit N Time, who was also ridden by Diego Saenz. The winner is trained by Sam Breaux and is owned by Bonnie Wall.

The $50,000 Bon Temps Starter saw upsetter Lady Emily Sage make it to the wire in front. Colby Hernandez rode the winner for trainer Rickey Courville and owners David Roy and Ricky Courville.

DELTA DOWNS PREPARING FOR LOUISIANA PREMIER NIGHT ON SATURDAY

–  $150,000 LAPN CHAMPIONSHIP HIGHLIGHTS RICH CARD FOR LOUISIANA-BREDS –

 

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs is gearing up for another rich race program on Saturday as the track hosts the 14th edition of Louisiana Premier Night. The 11-race program will feature 10 stakes races for Louisiana-bred horses worth $850,000 in total purse money. First post time for the lucrative program is set for 5:40 pm Central Time.

Saturday’s featured race will be the $150,000 Louisiana Premier Night Championship for older horses competing at 1-1/16 miles, which will be the 10th race on the program. This year’s Championship has attracted a full field of 10 including 2015 winner The Pickett Factor as well as Mageez, who took the B-Connected Stakes at Delta Downs on December 31. Graded stakes winner Mobile Bay is also part of the Championship field and a win would put him over the $1 million mark in career earnings.

The $100,000 Louisiana Premier Night Distaff field will include last year’s winner Forest Lake.
