VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the $68,000 Owner Appreciation Distaff on Friday night and it was Brittlyn Stable, Inc.’s Testing One Two who came away with her second stakes win of the season under jockey Diego Saenz. Testing One Two is conditioned by Victor Arceneaux.

Testing One Two used a perfect trip in the Owner Appreciation Distaff as she stalked an early speed dual between Americium, Arch Arch Baby and Cause You Can. That trio volleyed for the lead through opening fractions of 22.89 seconds for the quarter-mile, 47.52 for the half and 1:13.52 for three-quarters. When the field reached the second turn of their one-mile journey, Testing One Two put the leaders away and set sail for home while opening up a clear lead in the stretch.

VINTON, LA. – Crescentcitypretty used a strong performance to notch the first stakes of her career in the $70,000 Azalea Stakes at Delta Downs on Friday night for owner Brittlyn Stable, Inc. The 3-year-old daughter of Bernardini won the race under jockey Diego Saenz who got a leg up from trainer Jose Camejo.

After breaking sharply, Crescentcitypretty pressed the early pace set by Blowing Bayou, who carved out fractional times of 23.54 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 48.35 for the half in the seven-furlong test for sophomore Louisiana-bred fillies. Saenz began to ask for more run going into the far tun and Crescentsitypretty responded by putting away Blowing Bayou and opening up in the homestretch. At the finish line she was 5-3/4 lengths better than Fortune Got Even who just nosed out Madeforlife for the place.
