Jose O. Barron’s Di Maria, a 4-year-old daughter of Tee Cos, is one of 10 sprinters entered in Saturday’s 250-yard, $15,000 Harrah’s Dash Stakes at Louisiana Downs.
Trained by Carlos Saldivar, Di Maria will be shortening in distance off of his third-place finish, a half of a length behind winner Shatto Stoli, in the 400-yard, $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Derby (RG2) at Fair Grounds on December 9. The mare drew post 4 and will be ridden by Everardo Rodriguez.
Scoopies Leaving You, a 7-year-old Coronas Leaving You stallion trained by Kevin Broussard for owner Joel Galindo, has won four of his 10 starts at the 250-yard distance, and he ran second, a half of a length behind winner Mister Big, in last year’s Harrah’s Dash. The stallion has won 16 of his 42 starts, including eight of 12 at Louisiana Downs, and he has earned $318,433.
Scoopies Leaving You drew the rail post and will be ridden by Donald Watson.
