John Da Silva previews Louisiana Downs, he's found three must-bets!
Race 3 – Pick #9 Geaux Golden (5-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Cuts back in distance after tiring to fourth this level when making local debut. That was the first time in her career that she did not go off the post time favorite. Trainer Isai Gonzalez, who is based at Evangeline Downs, is for 4 for 10 shipping to Louisiana Downs this meet. Gonzalez also has Sing the Song in this race, who has a similar running style to Geaux Golden but on paper is not as fast as her.
Race 6 – Pick #12 Heffington (4-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
Broberg trainee takes a major drop in class to lowest claiming level of career. With the Louisiana Downs meet ending next week, Broberg is starting a last ditch effort to catch Steve Asmussen for the training title. Broberg might not mind losing some horses via claim as well because with Remington Park not giving him stalls, he will be stabled at new tracks like Hawthorne, but he won’t have as many horses and he is used to having at a track. Heffington is a closer and he should get a solid pace to close into versus these.
Race 8 – Pick #11 Nine Is Mine (6-1 ML) - Click here to bet with TVG
With the Evangeline Dows meet ending last month, trainer Isai Gonzalez has been shipping horses to Louisiana Downs and has done very well. Nine Is Mine stretches out for local debut after finishing third as the favorite this price and level versus state breds at Evangeline. He now returns to open company for first start since breaking maiden at Delta Downs in January. He should stalk the pace and get up in the stretch for the victory.
