The Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds was the lone graded Kentucky Derby 2012 route prep run over the weekend and Mr. Bowling knocked down twelve rivals in Saturday’s Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds.
The Lecomte did not look strong visually and received a mediocre 79
BSF. Mr. Bowling drifted out in the stretch and held off Z Dager by a
head. Shared Property, breaking from post 13, rallied to finish another ½
length back in 3rd place.
The top three are all expected back in New Orleans for the G2 Risen Star Stakes on Feb 25.
