Brittlyn Stable’s Beanwah’smachine comes into the 49th running of the Louisiana Futurity with three trips to the winner’s circle in three lifetime starts. In his last trip to the post in the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile at Fair Grounds on Dec. 10, the Successful Appeal colt got up in the late stages to be best by a half-length.


In Beanwah’smachine’s previous start on Thanksgiving Day, the Al Stall Jr. trainee proved best by two lengths after breaking his maiden at first asking at Louisiana Downs on Sept. 1. Regular jockey Shane Sellers rides.


Ed Wright Cattle Company and Miles Childers’ Bucktown, who was the runner-up to Beanwah’smachine during the local Thanksgiving Day Opening Day program, is slated as the 4-1 second choice in Saturday’s line with James Graham aboard.


Completing the field for the colts and geldings division of the Louisiana Futurity is the Whispering Oaks Farm-owned coupling of Gar and C.C. Dubai, Gerard Melancon and C. J. McMahon in the irons, respectively; Israel Flores Horses’ Shave and Pave, Rosie Napravnik; Stanley Seelig’s Paw Paw Ralph, John Jacinto; Sugarland Thoroughbreds’ Second Lion, Richard Eramia; Carl Moore Management’s Sworovski, Jamie Theriot; and Lange, Patin, Johnson and Richards’ Spreader, Ramsey Zimmerman.



Walter New’s Izzie’s Gold, less than fully extended when the four-length heroine of $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie on Dec. 10, has been pegged at 2-1 in the early line for the 45th renewal of the Louisiana Futurity’s filly division.


To be ridden once again by regular rider Gerard Melancon, the Brett Brinkman trainee ran fourth in the $150,000 Louisiana Jewel at Delta Downs Nov. 19 and was also fourth in Evangeline Downs’ $127,000 Young Memorial Futurity July 2.


Oak Leaf’s Effie, trained by Tony Richey, raced wide when seventh in the Louisiana Lassie but was runner-up in Delta Downs’ $150,000 Louisiana Jewel Nov. 19. To be ridden by Fair Grounds defending jockey champion Rosie Napravnik Saturday, Effie is the 3-1 second choice in the morning line.


Completing the field for the filly division of the Louisiana Futurity is John Tavormina’s Cajun Diva, Richard Eramia; Charles Begnaud’s Miss Helen Jay, Randall Toups; Robby Salome’s Wiggle My Toes, John Jacinto; Valene Farm’s Missionwithacause, Corey Lanerie; Roger Smith’s Ide Be Tuff E Nuff, Miguel Mena; and Mike Murrah and Jack Wright’s Osi Posse, C. J. McMahon.
