                                Louisiana Juvenile
by Tracy Gantz
Heza Lawman switched to trainer Ned Goutierrez III and jockey Everardo Rodriguez for the trial and final of the $50,000 Louisiana Juvenile at Delta
Downs. The changes paid off with two victories, including in the July 6 final.
In both races, Heza Lawman scored by just a head, but he got the job done. When the gate opened in the final, Heza Lawman broke in midpack. He came on with a late rush in the 350-yard event to post the win in :17.562 for a 91 speed index.
Goutierrez trains Heza Lawman for owner Jerry Deville Jr. Heza Lawman has never finished worse than second, getting a placing at Louisiana Downs in February and another at Delta Downs in April.
Blanchet Farms LLC, agent for breeder Michael Carlton, consigned Heza Lawman to the 2018 Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association Yearling Sale. Heza Lawman was a $20,000 repurchase.
Carlton bred Heza Lawman out of winner Dashin Kate Perry. The mare has produced three starters, all winners.
Blues Forrtune (Jess Louisiana Blue-Cartels Fortune), owned by The Horse Force LLC and trained by Heath Taylor, ran second. Randy Edison piloted the filly, who broke her maiden in her trial.
Rancho La Cobra owns third-place El Dorado Stone (Heza Fast Dash-Eyejesslovelouisiana). Jorge Linares rode the gelding for trainer Alfredo Triana. In four previous starts, El Dorado Stone finished third twice.
Completing the field were RDD Empire Builder (Jess Louisiana Blue-Jacquie O), Fast Dash Hondo Cat (AJs Fast Dash-Who Dat Hondo Cat TB), Apollitical Barbie (Apollitical Blood-Hott Feett), Some Quick Politic (Apollitical Blood-Some Quick Dasher), TF Toast To Whiskey (Sir Runaway Dash- Toast To Mallard) & Hot Tickin Patriot (Jet Black Patriot-Hot Tickin). Moonocracy was scratched.
Flashy Hemp Stakes
by John Moorehouse
Making her 11th career start, Cajun Cos posted her first win in stakes company in the $50,000 Flashy Hemp Stakes held at Delta Downs on July 6.
Trained by Brenda Foster, Cajun Cos broke on top from the 2-post and led at every remaining call of the 330-yard race for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares. The filly had a 1/2-length advantage at the first call, was running in front by a head going into the stretch, then withstood a late rally by High And Caliente to win by that same margin. Luis Vivanco drew the riding assignment and navigated Cajun Cos to a :16.625 run, registering a 98 speed index.
The 3-year-old filly now holds four total wins, two of them coming this year. All four of those victories have been tallied at Delta Downs. Owner Hilberto Guzman collected a $30,000 payday that increased Cajun Cos’ total earnings to $81,054.
Cajun Cos has spent the majority of her career racing on the Louisiana circuit, logging only one start out of state—at the Gillespie County Fair in Texas.
TJS Farms Inc., bred Cajun Cos out of 3-time winner JLS Crawfish Pie. She has produced 100% winners from two starters.
High And Caliente (Whathaveigottado-High On Sissy High) was second under Heriberto Aguilar- Orozco for owner/trainer Manuel Pizana.
Lil Biscuit (Heza Fast Dash-Biscuit Eater TB) faded late but still hit the board in third for MCM Farm LLC, and PDC Racing. Randy Edison was riding for trainer Heath Taylor.
Rounding out the order of finish were Flamin Hot Fortune (Jet Black Patriot-Toast To Fortune), Di Maria (Tee Cos-Tell Brenda), Monees Fast Cash (Heza Fast Dash-Cash For Mawnee), post-time favorite Amending The Bar (Five Bar Cartel-Making Amends), Google Chrome B (Coronas Leaving You-Fast Prize Ginger) and Sheza Pretty N Black (Heza Fast Dash-Jess Pretty In Black). Fastdashing Lassie scratched.
Louisiana Classic-RG2
by Tracy Gantz
San Lorenzo Corona kept his 2019 record perfect in the $100,000 Louisiana Classic-RG2 at Delta Downs on July 6. Since Josue Ponce took over the 5-year-old horse’s training and Victor Urieta Jr. began riding him, San Lorenzo Corona hasn’t missed a beat. Second by a head in last year’s Classic, San Lorenzo Corona broke third this year. In a closely fought battle with three others, he stuck his neck out in front at the wire, completing 440 yards in :21.309, good for a career-best 108 speed index.
Ponce trains San Lorenzo Corona for owner Rogelio Marquez Jr. Earlier this year, San Lorenzo Corona won the Open Me A Corona Stakes-G2 (named for his full brother) and Vals Fortune Stakes, both also at Delta Downs.
Jim and Natalie Montgomery bred San Lorenzo Corona in Louisiana out of lightly raced In The Open. The mare has produced nine winners from 13 starters, including multiple stakes winner Open Me A Corona and stakes-placed Surf N Turf Dude and Im Jess Blue.
Saul Ramirez Jr. rode DLJ Imma B Famous (Coronas Leaving You-Yugo Buds) to second for owner Myron McKinnon and trainer Alberto Solis. DLJ Imma B Famous ran second in the 2018 Esplanade Stakes and third in the 2019 Vals Fortune Stakes.
Lightemupwithcharm (Sizzlin Cartel-Grace Filled Charm) finished third under jockey Rolando Pina for owner Saul Dorado and trainer Ebelyn Rojas. The 5-year-old gelding won the 2018 Louisiana Classic as well as the 2018 Vals Fortune Stakes-G2.
