Hero of Order Stuns Mark Valeski in Louisiana Derby

The winding road to Kentucky Derby 2012 took an unexpected turn in Louisiana on Sunday when 109-1 outsider Hero of Order shocked the world in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby.

 

G2 Louisiana Derby (4-1-12): 90 BSF (Hero of Order)

 

As expected, longshot Comisky’s Humor shot to the early lead in the Fair Grounds showcase on Sunday with Hero of Order, Windsurfer, Cigar Street, and Mark Valeski chasing.

 

The 26-1 early leader was done after six furlongs and bomber Hero of Order took over. Windsurfer was one paced along the inside and Mark Valeski started to advance turning for home.

 

Hero of Order opened up a 1.5 length advantage and appeared to be saying come and get me…but nobody could. In the end, the Gennadi Dorochenko trainee held on by a 1/2 length under Eddie Martin Jr. with Mark Valeski settling for runner-up honors once again. The latter threw a shoe and bruised his foot during the race.
