Good Deed Digs Deep at Fair Grounds

Richard, Bertram and Elaine Klein’s Good Deed, a half-sister to that same family’s stakes winners Country Day and Due Date, proved no disappointment to her many backers as the odds-on choice in Sunday’s $60,000 Letellier Memorial Stakes at Fair Grounds.

 

The juvenile daughter of Broken Vow broke in full stride to make the pace with splits of 22.05 and 45.50 and then accomplished the three-quarter mile distance in 1:11.43 to capture the preview of Fair Grounds’ series for sophomore fillies by three lengths on Sunday.

 

“She was getting a little late on me at the end, but she dug down deep,” said winning rider Corey Lanerie of Good Deed immediately following the Letellier. “I came into the race thinking she couldn’t get beat and she proved me right.”

 

Trained by Steve Margolis, Good Deed paid $3.40, $2.20 and $2.10, and increased her lifetime earnings to $88,600 with her third victory in four career starts.

 

Stoneway Farm’s Swift Artist was clearly second best, returning $3.60 and $2.20 while finishing a length and a half in front of Peter Redekop B. C. Ltd.’s Our Eleanor, who paid $3 to show.

 

Racing resumes Wednesday at Fair Grounds with a nine-race program beginning at 12:40 p.m.
