We are going to have Saturday horse racing cards as a regular weekly feature here at Horse Racing Tote. The focus will usually be on stakes races as we will see Kentucky Derby qualifiers coming thick and fast in the next couple of months. For now, let’s focus on Louisiana Champions Day at Fair Grounds on Dec. 12.

Race 7 – Ladies Sprint Stakes for 3yo & Up Fillies & Mares 6F Dirt – $100,000
A field of 8 is set to go in this one, with the morning line favorite being a 6yo mare named Mr. Al’s Gal at odds of 3/1. She is closely followed by Diamond Crazy at 7/2 and Snowball at 9/2.

The final stakes race of the day at the Fair Grounds looks set to come down to a 2-horse race; but we can always expect surprises. Shang is in as the 8/5 morning line favorite, followed by Underpressure at 5/2.
