VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs kicked off its final weekend of Thoroughbred racing for 2019-20 on Friday night with an 11-race program that featured a pair of stakes events. The $76,300 Take Charge Brandi was won by Our Lost Love and the $70,600 Owner Appreciation Distaff was annexed by Shes Our Fastest.
The Take Charge Brandi, a seven-furlong test for 3-year-old fillies, was over soon after it began, as Our Lost Love broke sharply form her inside post position and dictated the pace throughout before reporting home 1-1/4 lengths in front of West Bank Baby and Green Monster, who finished another 2-3/4 lengths behind the top pair.
Under jockey Joel Dominguez, the dark bay or brown winner carved out fractional times of 23.57 seconds for the opening quarter mile, 48.41 for the half, and 1:14.17 for three-quarters before finishing up in 1:28.22. The race was contested over a fast track.
The win by Our Lost Love, who is trained by Joey Foster, was the fourth of her seven-race career. She’s won two-of-four starts at Delta Downs. Her $48,000 first-place prize on Friday raised her bankroll to $181,820.
Bred in Louisiana by her owner Tri Star Racing, LLC, Our Lost Love is a 3-year-old filly by Half Ours, out of the Private Vow mare Lost Love Baby.
Sent to the gate as the betting favorite at odds of 3-2, Our Lost Love paid $5 to win, $3.40 to place and $3 to show. West Bank Baby was worth $7.20 to place and $4.80 to show. Green Monster paid $5 to show.
