Interesting Cast Signed on for Fair Grounds Stakes

Category : News - Mon 02/03/2015 - 13:12 EST

Stakes action resumes at Fair Grounds March 6 with the $40,000 South Mississippi Owners and Breeders Stakes with ten three year-olds set to go six furlongs on the main track.

Ike Walker is the 8/5 morning line favorite for trainer Michael Stidham, despite posting just one win in his first six career starts.  The three year-old gelding kept top company during his juvenile campaign, running fifth in the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Futurity and twelfth in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland, but has been unable to break through despite dropping to the allowance level in his last two starts.  Ike Walker could do no better than fourth against allowance foes October 26 at Churchill and returned at the same level February 5 at Fair Grounds with another fourth place finish.  Jockey James Graham will have the mount breaking from post nine.

Amoss filly debuts in stakes race 

Trainer Tom Amoss saddles 4/1 second choice Indian Wildcat, a filly making her career debut.  The well-bred first-time starter is by Indian Charlie out of a Forest Wildcat mare, and has worked steadily at Fair Grounds since February 6 for her unveiling.  Amoss connects at a high percentage with debut runners and gives this filly a confident nod to attempt stakes foes in her first race.  Francisco Torres gets the call breaking from post three. 

“Other Amoss” entry steps up in class 

Amoss also trains the other half of the uncoupled entry represented by 5/1 shot Likeallgetout.  The Oklahoma-bred has won two of four starts racing at Remington Park and Sam Houston in claiming races.
