Smart Bid Expected in Fair Grounds Handicap

Augustin Stable’s Smart Bid, winner of last season’s Grade II Mervin Muniz Memorial Handicap as the headline attraction of Fair Grounds’ grass-racing season over the Stall-Wilson turf course, could be headed for chance to repeat in that local turf classic.

 

Conditioned by last year’s Kentucky Derby winning trainer Graham Motion, Smart Bid is on track for a run in the Grade III Fair Grounds Handicap on Louisiana Derby Preview Day Feb. 25. The $125,000 Fair Grounds ‘Cap serves as the designed local prep for the $400,000 Mervin Muniz Memorial.

 

Veteran reinsman Edgar Prado has been engaged to ride Smart Bid in the Fair Grounds Handicap.

 

Others considered likely for the Fair Grounds Handicap at this time include Andrews T and S Racing’s Mr. Vegas, winner of the Grade III Col. E. R. Bradley Handicap here Jan. 21 and trained by Richie Scherer; David Holloway Racing’s Dubious Miss, second in the Col. Bradley and trained by Paul McGee; Chester Miller and Patrick Dupuy’s Strike Impact, currently trained by Merrill Scherer and third in the Col. Bradley; and Connie Apostelos’s Papaw Bodie, a Mike Maker trainee who won the Grade III John B. Connally Stakes at Sam Houston at last asking Jan. 28.
