The $50,000 Acadiana Stakes for Louisiana-bred 3-year-old fillies at seven furlongs was run Friday.June 2 at Evangeline Downs. Efforting was sent off as the 7-5 betting favorite and lived up to that support by drawing off to a 3-1/2 length victory in a final time of 1:24.81. She settled nicely in behind the pacesetting Molly Rules at the outset. Molly Rules set a decent pace of 23.27 seconds for the quarter and 46.76 for the half, but once the field made the stretch, jockey Colby Hernandez moved Efforting to the front and she never looked back.
Efforting is a 3-year-old filly bred in Louisiana by Orange Grove Thoroughbreds, Inc. She is owned by Fair Grounds Racing Club, Inc. She is by Into Mischief and out of the Carson City mare, Get Going Bertie.
