Star Guitar's Legend Grows at Evangeline

Star Guitar, the all-time leading Louisiana-bred earner, added to his legacy June 30 when he rallied to win the $100,000 Louisiana Legends Night Classic at Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino in track record time.

The son of Quiet American trained by Al Stall Jr. for breeder Evelyn Benoit’s Brittlyn Stable raced well off the tepid early pace of Productive Envoy before rallying in the stretch to wear down leader Heavy On Themister for a three-quarters of a length victory. The final time under jockey Gerard Melancon was 1:43.71 for 1 1/16 miles on the main track, bettering the previous record for the distance set by Drill Hall in 2006.

Star Guitar’s fourth win in the Louisiana Legends Night Classic improved his record to 24 wins and two third-place finishes in 30 starts, with earnings of $1,749,862.

Finally learned what the heck the track announcer there says at the start of each race--Ils sont parti! They're off!
Would love to see him try a BC race like the sprint
This track MUST be at the top of the list of entries per race. Fields are large and competitive.
Evangeline is a GREAT on which to wager. Met Arcaro there many a moon ago when it was at its old location. I wuldn't VISIT again as it was too hot, but betting it is a shear joy...Congrats to this good horse too
