VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the $68,000 Owner Appreciation Distaff on Friday night and it was Brittlyn Stable, Inc.’s Testing One Two who came away with her second stakes win of the season under jockey Diego Saenz. Testing One Two is conditioned by Victor Arceneaux.

 

Testing One Two used a perfect trip in the Owner Appreciation Distaff as she stalked an early speed dual between Americium, Arch Arch Baby and Cause You Can. That trio volleyed for the lead through opening fractions of 22.89 seconds for the quarter-mile, 47.52 for the half and 1:13.52 for three-quarters. When the field reached the second turn of their one-mile journey, Testing One Two put the leaders away and set sail for home while opening up a clear lead in the stretch.

 

At the finish line, Testing One Two was 2-1/4 lengths clear of Maline who rallied for second while Saffron Spirit finished another two lengths behind in third. Testing One Two covered the eight furlongs in a time of 1:41.86 while running on fast track.

 

The win by Testing One Two was the eighth of her 13-race career. It was also her second stakes victory of the season. She also won the Treasure Chest Stakes on November 16. Friday night’s score was worth $42,000 and it raised her career bankroll to $399,660.

 

Testing One Two was bred in Louisiana by her owner. She is a 4-year-old bay filly by Star Guitar, out of the Scat Daddy mare Yes Sir.

 

Sent to the gate as the favorite at odds of 8-5, Testing One Two paid $5.20 to win, $3.20 to place and $2.20 to show. Maline was worth $8.20 to place and $4 to show. Saffron Spirit returned $6.60 to show.

VINTON, LA. – Crescentcitypretty used a strong performance to notch the first stakes of her career in the $70,000 Azalea Stakes at Delta Downs on Friday night for owner Brittlyn Stable, Inc. The 3-year-old daughter of Bernardini won the race under jockey Diego Saenz who got a leg up from trainer Jose Camejo.

 

After breaking sharply, Crescentcitypretty pressed the early pace set by Blowing Bayou, who carved out fractional times of 23.54 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 48.35 for the half in the seven-furlong test for sophomore Louisiana-bred fillies. Saenz began to ask for more run going into the far tun and Crescentsitypretty responded by putting away Blowing Bayou and opening up in the homestretch. At the finish line she was 5-3/4 lengths better than Fortune Got Even who just nosed out Madeforlife for the place.

 

Crescentcitypretty covered seven furlongs of the Azalea Stakes in a time of 1:28.35 while running on a track listed as good.

 

The win by Crescentcitypretty came in her third career start. She most recently finished third in the Louisiana Premier Night Starlet on February 9 after breaking her maiden at first asking in on January 16. Friday night’s tally earned her $42,000 and raised her bankroll to $79,000.

 

Bred in Louisiana by her owner, Crescentcitypretty is a 3-year-old bay filly by Bernardini out of the Badge of Silver mare Penelope Plum.

 

Fans who wagered on the race made Crescentcitypretty the overwhelming 1-5 favorite and she paid $2.40 to win, $2.10 to place and $2.10 to show. Fortune Got Even was worth $3.40 to place and $2.10 to show. Madeforlife paid $2.10 to show.

 

Delta Downs will close out its race week on Saturday with another program that begins at 5:25 pm CST. The 10-race card includes the $70,000 Pelican Stakes for 3-year-old Louisiana-breds.

Midway up the backstretch Jimi’s a Star began a sustained rally that put him within three lengths of the lead with a furlong to go. In the stretch he rallied passed his competition and reported home ¾ of a length in front of Titanium Pledge who finished second and Power Jet, who was another neck behind in third.

 

Jimi’s a Star covered the distance of the Pelican in a time of 1:28.42 while running on a fast track.

 

The victory was the first stakes score of Jimi’s a Star’s career and earned $42,000 for the effort. His career bankroll now stands at $129,820 on three wins from 12 trips to the starting gate.
