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’

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.
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.
