Vacherie Girl closed stoutly to record a 6 1/2-length debut win while facing state-bred foes going 5 1/2 furlongs at this track Nov. 28. The chestnut filly raced in the clear at midpack as the field split into two groups down the backstretch. She surged into contention on the turn and closed determinedly down the lane to get on top in the final strides. Vacherie Girl, the second stakes winner for her freshman sire (by Tapit), was purchased for $87,000 following a :10 1/5 work at this year’s OBS June sale.
