VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the 15th edition of Louisiana Premier Night on Saturday and the fans who attended the rainy evening program were treated to 12-race card that included 10 stakes races worth total purse money of more than $1 million.

Under jockey Diego Saenz the Victor Arceneaux trainee tracked the early pace set by Temprano, who carved out fractional times of 24.65 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 48.77 for the half. As the field of six entered the second turn of the 1 1/16-mile test for older horses, Mobile Bay took command after traveling three-quarters of a mile in 1:14.08, opening up a lead of nearly two lengths. But the race was far from over.

In the homestretch, Mobile Bay drifted out while Underpressure began to cut into the leader’s advantage stride by stride while hugging the rail under Gerard Melancon. At the finish line only a nose separated the rivals with Mobile Bay taking home the winner’s trophy. Social Misfit wound up third another 5-1/2 lengths behind the top pair. The final time in the Louisiana Premier Night Championship was 1:46.49. Each race on the rich program was contested over a sealed track listed as sloppy.

Mobile Bay has now won 12 of 27 lifetime starts. He earned $102,000 for his win on Saturday and now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $1,198,440. The dark bay or brown horse went over the $1 million mark in career earnings with his win the Championship last year.

Bred in Louisiana by his owner, Mobile Bay is a 6-year-old by Lone Star Special, out of the Out of Place mare Tranquility Bay.

Mobile Bay was sent to the gate at odds of 3-5 and returned $3.40 to win, $2.20 to place and $2.10 to show. Underpressure was worth $3 to place and $2.40 to show. Social Misfit paid $4.20 to show.

In other stakes activity on the program it was Pacific Pink winning the $145,000 Louisiana Premier Night Distaff under jockey Colby Hernandez, who got a riding double on the card. Pacific Pink is trained by Edward J. Johnston and is owned by Keith Plaisance.

This year’s $100,000 Louisiana Premier Night Sprint was taken by Ivery Sisters Racing’s Monte Man, who was ridden to victory by Gerard Melancon. Monte Man is trained by Ron Faucheux.

Jockey Roberto Morales notched a riding triple on the special night of racing included two stakes scores. He booted home Gladyousawme in the $120,000 Louisiana Premier Night Prince for owner Klein Racing and trainer Brad Cox. He also made it to the winner’s circle in the $120,000 Louisiana Premier Night Matron aboard the Larry Jones trainee Ours to Run, who is owned by Colonel Thoroughbreds LLC.

The $120,000 Louisiana Premier Night Starlet was annexed by Al and Bill Ulwelling’s Remember Daisy, who was ridden to victory by Mitchell Murrill. Remember Daisy is conditioned by Gary Scherer.

–  LEADING JOCKEY DIEGO SAENZ GETS A RIDING TRIPLE ON RICH NIGHT OF RACING –

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the 14th edition of Louisiana Premier Night on Saturday which included 10 stakes races and total purse money of more than $850,000 offered.

The eventual winner led the field of 10 onto the backstretch while going the half mile in 48.00 and three quarters in 1:12.49. When Mobile Bay reached the homestretch he was confronted by The Pickett Factor, who moved alongside the leader but could not get past and would up beaten by one length on the finish line. Fort Pulaski finished another 4-1/2 lengths behind the top pair in third.

Mobile Bay covered the distance over a fast track in 1:44.81.

The win by Mobile Bay marked the 10th triumph of his 25-race career and the $90,000 first-place prize put his career bankroll over the seven digit mark at $1,006,440.

Bred in Louisiana by his owner, Mobile Bay is a 5-year-old dark bay or brown horse by Lone Star Special out of the Out of Place mare Tranquility Bay.

Sent to the gate as the heavy favorite at odds of 4-5 on the tote board, Mobile Bay returned $3.60 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.20 to show. The Pickett Factor paid $5.20 to place and $3.40 to show. Fort Pulaski was worth $12.60 to show.

In other action on Louisiana Premier Night it was Underpressure winning the $100,000 LAPN Prince with jockey Diego Saenz in the saddle for trainer Chris Richard. The winner is owned by Mallory Greiner.

The $100,000 LAPN Starlet was annexed by Mr. Al’s Gal, who reported home in front with jockey Richard Eramia at the controls. Mr. Al’s Gal is owned by Brittlyn Stable, Inc. and is conditioned by Justin Jeansonne.

The $100,000 LAPN Matron was the scene of Sunny Oak’s latest score as she won easily with jockey Miguel Mena riding for trainer Edward Johnston. Sunny Oak is owned by Keith Plaisance.

DELTA DOWNS PREPARING FOR LOUISIANA PREMIER NIGHT ON SATURDAY

–  $150,000 LAPN CHAMPIONSHIP HIGHLIGHTS RICH CARD FOR LOUISIANA-BREDS –

 

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs is gearing up for another rich race program on Saturday as the track hosts the 14th edition of Louisiana Premier Night. The 11-race program will feature 10 stakes races for Louisiana-bred horses worth $850,000 in total purse money. First post time for the lucrative program is set for 5:40 pm Central Time.

Saturday’s featured race will be the $150,000 Louisiana Premier Night Championship for older horses competing at 1-1/16 miles, which will be the 10th race on the program. This year’s Championship has attracted a full field of 10 including 2015 winner The Pickett Factor as well as Mageez, who took the B-Connected Stakes at Delta Downs on December 31. Graded stakes winner Mobile Bay is also part of the Championship field and a win would put him over the $1 million mark in career earnings.
