Saturday's 10th race (4:25pm CT) from Fair Grounds is the $100,000 LA Champions Day Turf for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the turf course.

#5 STRING KING (6-1) is an interesting mid-priced contender. He ran well to land the place from post 11 as the beaten favorite when last seen at LAD Sept 24. The 3yo gelding earned improved numbers in his last pair and has been freshened for this. Graham hops aboard the 2-time turf winner.

#2 Kissimmee Kyle (3-1) probably needed his last in the off the turf Mr. Sulu. He has fired Trifecta shots in all seven turf starts including four Exacta finishes in New Orleans. He probably springs forward for Albarado/Stall.

#3 Wildrally (9-2) packs a decent late kick at times and Rosie booted this one home in a local Stakes Jan 8.

#9 Old Bushmill (4-1) has reeled off three straight and his numbers are going the right way. He runs well fresh but might prefer the LAD lawn.

#10 First To Bingo (20-1) was claimed out of his last and seems worth throwing in underneath. He likes the local green and was competitive against this type in the past.

THE PLAYS: $16 to win #5

$3 Exacta Box 2-5 ($6)

$1 Trifecta 2-5/2-3-5-9/2-3-5-9-10 ($18)

Nice score!
Very nice outcome in this one. Brought home the win, exacta, and trifecta in a 3-horse blanket finish.
