The 44th running of the $100,000 Bayou Handicap for older fillies and mares over Fair Grounds’ Stall-Wilson turf course is highlighted on Saturday’s Fair Grounds Oaks Day undercard.


Oakcrest Farm et al.’s Upperline, trained by Mike Stidham and defending champion from last year’s Bayou Handicap while also winner of last season’s $60,000 Allen Lacombe Memorial Handicap, heads the field of seven.




The feminine-themed Fair Grounds Oaks Day Saturday also includes two stakes restricted to accredited Louisiana-bred members of the distaff set.


Brittlyn Stable’s Sunday’s Child, trained by Al Stall Jr., captured Fair Grounds’ $60,000 Sarah Lanes Oates at last asking and will be well regarded among the 10 accredited Louisiana-bred sophomore fillies that are entered in Saturday’s seventh running of the $75,000 Crescent City Oaks.


In the $60,000 Red Camelia, for accredited Louisiana-bred fillies and mares to be run over the Stall-Wilson turf course Saturday, Russell Welch’s Warrior Maid, trained by Eric Heitzmann and winner of Delta’s $150,000 Premier Distaff in her last start Feb. 4, is expected to draw strong support in the field of nine.
