GOODPROFIT CASHES IN WITH MAIDEN-BREAKING PERFORMANCE IN LOUISIANA JEWEL AT DELTA DOWNS

Delta Downs hosted the $100,000 Louisiana Jewel for Louisiana-bred 2-year-old fillies on Friday night, November 16, 2018.

The Louisiana Jewel turned into a coming out party for James Mcingvale’s Goodprofit, who broke her maiden while under jockey Gerard Melancon. The Chris Richard trainee was coming off a runner-up effort in her first start of the season on October 26.

Goodprofit was reserved early in the one-mile Jewel as she sat nearly 10 lengths off the pace set by Cohenscollegefund, who set fractional times of 23.57 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 49.12 for the half. As the field of six made the second and final turn of the race it was wagering favorite Silvercents who took a brief lead before Goodprofit stormed by at the head of the lane. Through the homestretch Goodprofit opened up an insurmountable lead and reported home 5-1/4 lengths in front of Silvercents for the win. Fortune Got Even rallied late for third, another 2-3/4 lengths behind the top pair. 

Goodprofit covered the distance over a fast track in a time of 1:41.96. 

The winner’s prize in the Jewel was $60,000 and it raised Goodprofit’s bankroll to $75,350. She has now won once from five career starts. 

Bred in Louisiana by her owner, Goodprofit is a bay filly by Guilt Trip out of the Charismatic mare Charming Colleen.

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the $150,000 Louisiana Jewel Stakes for 2-year-old Louisiana-bred fillies on Friday night and the one-mile race turned into a coming out party for Brittlyn Stables, Inc.’s Testing One Two.

Entering the far turn Testing One Two surged to the lead and when she hit the top of the lane she was on cruise control while increasing her advantage and never being asked by Saenz. Yes Gorgeous finished second while Bionic Butterly picked up the show spot, another 2-1/4 lengths behind the runner-up.

 

Testing One Two covered the eight-furlong distance in a time of 1:40.09 over a track listed as fast.
