Country Flavor Eyes Louisiana Handicap

Trainer Greg Geier was all smiles Sunday morning on the backstretch at Fair Grounds, and with good reason after the way Jim Tafel’s Country Flavor closed strongly to win Saturday’s $60,000 Tenacious Handicap by a neck.

 

“The horse was sick when we got here from Chicago,” said Geier, “but he’s doing fine now, even after running such a good race yesterday.”

 

Owner Tafel, a Barrington, Illinois, resident who won the 2008 Kentucky Derby with Street Sense, was equally pleased, according to Geier. “He was tickled to death,” said Geier. “This horse is one of his homebreds – out of one of his mares – so that makes it even better. I think we’ll look at the ($60,000) Louisiana Handicap (Jan. 22) for (Country Flavor’s) next start.”
