C.J. McMahon earned his 1,000th career win Jan. 1 at Delta Downs.

 

Multiple graded stakes-winning jockey C.J.

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the 12th running of the $70,000 B Connected Stakes on Saturday night and it was Craig Drago’s Bending Saint who prevailed under jockey Tim Thornton. The win marked Bending Saint’s first in stakes company and it was the second year in a row that Drago won the same race. In 2018 he visited the B Connected winner’s circle with Just Stormin. Both horses were trained by Allen Landry.

 

Bending Saint broke sharply in the seven-furlong B Connected but did not gain the early advantage as Queeten sprinted out to a narrow lead and carved out fractional times of 23.54 seconds for the opening quarter mile, 48.13 for the half, and 1:13.58 for three quarters. When the field reached the second turn Thornton shook the reins after stalking the leader and his mount responded by overhauling Queeten and setting sail for home, widening his margin to four lengths over the 8-5 favorite Double Barrel Man at the finish line. Star Fitzstall finished third, another three lengths behind the top pair.

 

The final time of this year’s B Connected was 1:26.45. The race was run over a fast track.

 

The win by Bending Saint marked the eighth of his career from 31 overall starts. He earned $42,000 for the effort and now has a lifetime bankroll of $258,174.

 

Bred in Louisiana by Daniel Chicola, Bending Saint is a 5-year-old chestnut gelding by Saint Afleet, out of the Langfuhr mare Bending Grass.

 

Sent to the gate at odds of 5-2, Bending Saint paid $7 to win, $3.60 to place and $2.60 to show. Double Barrel Man paid $3.20 to place and $2.20 to show. Star Fitzstall was worth $2.80 to show.

 

Delta Downs will conduct its 13th week of live racing next Wednesday through Saturday. First post time Wednesday and Thursday nights will be at 4:55 pm CST. The first race on Friday and Saturday will be at 5:55 pm.
