NEW ORLEANS (March 23, 2019) – It was a Brad Cox exacta in the $75,000 New Orleans Ladies Stakes as Beau Recall (Ire.) ($10.80, $5.20 and $3.20) displayed a winning turn of foot down the top of the stretch to run down stalemate Sensitive ($4.40 and $3.20) capture her second stakes triumph of the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots meet.
The Slam Dunk Racing and Medallion Racing-owned daughter of Sir Prancealot (Ire.) was guided by Jose Ortiz who placed her at the back of the pack in the races early stages while Southern California invader Lady Mamba set opening fractions of 24.21, 48.82 and 1:12.58 with Sensitive sitting a half-length off the pacesetter in second. At the top of the stretch Lady Mamba duked it out with Sensitive who led into the final eighth of a mile, but Beau Recall gunned her down within the last sixteenth. She won by half-length in a time of 1:42.11. Sensitive ran second and Vagabond Princess ($3.60) finished third.
Completing the order of finish were Lady Mamba, Flower Party (Ire.), Coachwhip, Hey Niki, and La Sola Ranger.
“She broke really well and was very alert,” Ortiz said. “We were a little worried before the race because we thought there wouldn’t be much pace but it was decent. It was very steady and I was able to put her in a good spot. She had good momentum entering the stretch. When I took her out, she just exploded.”
