Carl Moore Management’s Illusion of Speed broke in full stride to make all the pace and continued willingly in the stretch to win Sunday’s $43,000 allowance optional claiming sprint at Fair Grounds by 2 1/4-lengths.

 

The daughter of Trippi, trained by Bret Calhoun and ridden by Chris Rosier, recorded early splits of 21.80 and 45.81, accomplished the three-quarters in 1:13.06 in the race restricted to accredited Louisiana-bred older fillies and mare and increased her career earnings to $105,330 with her fourth win in 10 lifetime starts. She returned mutuels of $8.20, $4.80 and $3.40.

 

Charlene Touzet Thorson’s Calmed, unhurried early, rallied late to gain the place, finishing a nose to the good of Edward Johnston Racing Stable’s Firy Mistress. Calmed, an 8-year-old mare, paid $6.20 and $4.20 and Firy Mistress returned $6.60 in the show position.
