Louisiana Downs
Manuel Alvarez's La Mos Corona sprinted to a half-length win in Saturday's $25,000 Party Girl Stakes (R) for state-bred distaffers.

Ridden by Floriberto Maldonado for trainer Orlando Orozco, La Mos Corona went 350 yards in :17.447. In addition to earning a 103 speed index, the 4-year-old bay daughter of Coronas Leaving You banked the $15,000 winner's share of the Party Girl Stakes purse.

“She didn’t get the best break, but se came flying at the end,” said Orozco. “These were some of the best fillies in Louisiana, so we are very happy with the win.”

La Mos Corona was bred by Oscar Rohne. The mare currently sports a four-race win streak that includes two wins at Evangeline Downs, including the 330-yard, $30,000 Billy Montgomery Stakes (R) on a sloppy and sealed track on November 1.
