Monday’s 7th race from Delta Downs is the $100,000 Jean Lafitte Stakes for 2-year-olds traveling seven furlongs on the main track (Post Time 4:39 p.m. ET).
#3 DRAIN THE CLOCK (4-1) earned quality speed figures in both dirt sprint wins in Florida. He owns the best pace ratings and is probably the one to catch.
#2 Privet Moon (8-1) fired in both maiden sprints at Indiana Grand and earned an improved number in a victory in the slop Oct. 21. He should attend the pace.
#4 Awesome Gerry (6-5) won his first two starts in Florida and shipped to Keeneland and ran into buzzsaw Highly Motivated in the Nyquist Stakes Nov. 6. He drilled a bullet for this Nov. 22 and projects a decent stalking trip.
#3 to win
