Stakes Recap: Grade III Lecomte Stakes
LOUISIANA-BRED VICAR’S IN TROUBLE WINS G3 LECOMTE
NEW ORLEANS (January 18, 2014) – Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Louisiana-bred Vicar’s in Trouble, a well-regarded second choice in the wagering in Saturday’s Grade III Lecomte Stakes on Road to the Derby Day at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, became the first Louisiana-bred horse since One Tough Cat in 1987 to win the first leg of a three-race series that will conclude with the $1 million Louisiana Derby on March 29 at the Crescent City oval.
Robby Albarado (jockey, winner Unbridled Forever): “She is a phenomenal filly. She’s got a lot of buttons to her. Dallas has been very high on her from the start. I’ve never gotten on her in the mornings, only in the three races. She’s been exceptional every race. I’d like to congratulate Mr. Fipke. He’s done a lot for racing and deserves one like this. I don’t feel like we know the depth of her yet. Obviously a nice filly today, Larry Jones filly, hung in there tough. I think there is more to her.
