Letellier Memorial Stakes at Fair Grounds.
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

“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.”
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.

Our Eleanor, who paid $3 to show.
