Stakes Advances: Louisiana Stakes


ALBANO KICKS OFF CAMPAIGN IN LOUISIANA STAKES


NEW ORLEANS (Monday, January 12, 2015) – Brereton C. Jones’ Albano will look to kick off what could be a breakthrough year for the son of Istan when he heads a six-horse field for the 69th running of the 1 1/16-mile Listed $75,000 Louisiana Stakes at Fair Grounds Race Course on Saturday afternoon. Trained by Larry Jones, the bay 4-year-old exits a sophomore season that saw him win the Grade III $150,000 Pegasus Stakes, finish second to subsequent Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Bayern in the Grade I $1,000,000 Haskell Invitational and place in three other graded stakes. Since returning to training, the Kentucky-bred has worked phenomenally, including five bullet works in his last seven moves – highlighted by a five-furlong breeze in :59.60 on Jan. 6. Kerwin Clark rides from post five.

JOCKEY QUOTES

MARTIN GARCIA, HOPPERTUNITY, WINNER: “I rode him with a lot of confidence; I knew I had the best horse. I just let him break, I saved ground on the rail and I knew they were going fast up front so I just had to wait. I expected that and more.”

Gravesend Quotes


David Jacobson, winning trainer of Salutos Amigos (No. 4): "He was spectacular, as usual. The race laid out just the way we thought it would, with Dads Caps and Green Gratto setting the early pace. [Jockey] Irad [Ortiz, Jr.] did an amazing job again; there's not that much to say. We were hoping he would get through [along the inside], and then [Irad] lost his stick. It gets to be a concern, but this horse went into the race as good as he's ever gone into a race. It was a great performance and a great ride by Irad."
