Dream Walking Farms’ Seeking Ms Shelley, allowed to settle just behind the early leaders, launched a bold bid outside those when set down for the drive and held on late for a three-quarter-length tally in Friday’s $44,500 five-and-a-half-furlong sprint for fillies and mares at Fair Grounds.

 

The winner, ridden by Robby Albarado and trained by Joe Duhon, paid $10.60, $6.40 and $5.40, accomplished the sprint in 58.29 and increased her career earnings to $93,990 with her fourth victory in eight lifetime starts.

 

Lloyd Madison Farms IV’s Valentine Fever rallied on the extreme outside to be easily second best, returning $14.60 and $9.40, while Gainesway Stable’s Ocean Colors, who made the pace with splits of 22.69 and 46.35, held on for third at the wire, paying $3.60 while four lengths behind the runner-up.

 

Racing resumes Saturday at Fair Grounds with a 12-race program beginning at 12:40 p.m., and Fair Grounds fans are reminded that on this Super Bowl Sunday there will be a special early post time of 11:30 a.m. to allow fans to get home in time to watch their beloved New Orleans Saints in their first Super Bowl appearance.
