Another full field of 2-year-old accredited Louisiana-bred fillies set the stage for an exciting edition of the six-furlong $50,000 Louisiana Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Making just the second start of her career, Anton Kobacak’s Emily’s Lollipop became a stakes winner for trainer Scott Gelner. Returning off her maiden race at Prairie Meadows, she took the lead under Diego Saenz, drawing off by a margin of five lengths over longshot Sarah’s Holy Belle. Feisty Embrace ran third and recent stakes winner Janae held for fourth.

Emily’s Lollipop rewarded her supporters with a win payout of $18.40.
