12/9/17

Cajun Creed finished a fast closing 3rd tonight in the Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile Stakes. He was bumped at the start and found himself near the back early. With a patient ride, he made his way to the top of the stretch with plenty of run left. He weaved his way through traffic, but ran out of time before he could get by the top two, beaten by only two lengths for the win. It was another good stakes run, and despite his continued search for his first stakes win, he has clearly stamped himself as one of the top two year-old Louisiana-bred horses currently racing.

11/18/17

Cajun Creed finished 2nd tonight in the Louisiana Legacy Stakes in a great effort at Delta Downs! He lost in a game effort once again to a familiar foe from his last race. He did not break well, but quickly righted himself and sat off the pace until they turned for home. When given his cue, he took a shot at the leader and looked like he might run on by, but the winner was up to the task and benefited from the slow early fractions. The now multiple stakes placed Cajun Creed is definitely one of the top Louisiana-bred two year-olds currently racing and has really posted a great two year-old campaign. 


11/17/17

 10/28/17

Cajun Creed was outnodded for the win tonight in a photo finish at Delta Downs. He broke well and took up a good stalking position early. He had to remain wide throughout the backstretch, but steadily gained on the leaders. As they turned for the finish line, it became a two horse race with Cajun Creed losing the nod at the finish. The game effort tonight sets him up nicely for a possible run in the Louisiana Legacy Stakes.

  

10/28/17

Indian Bayou worked four furlongs from the starting gate this morning at Evangeline Downs in :54.40 over a wet fast track.  She ran very well after she broke from the gate, but she is still trying to master a timely break.

10-14-17

Indian Bayou had her first official breeze this morning at the Evangeline Training Center. She breezed three furlongs in company in :38.21. It was as good first official breeze for the two year-old filly. She will look to work from the starting gate next week, if all goes as planned.

8-29-17

He will break from post position #10 in the 10 horse field with jockey Roberto Morales in the saddle. In preparation for the stakes run, he worked four furlongs this morning in :49.40, which was tenth fastest of the 21 horses who worked the distance. 


8-25-17

Trinni finished 4th in her race tonight at Emerald Downs on the step up in class. She broke well and took up a good stalking position but flattened out in the stretch.

8-4-17

Trinni put in the big effort she needed tonight in an exciting win at Emerald Downs! She broke well but did not chase the early speed. With Rocco Bowen aboard, they saved ground around the turn.

6-23-17

Trinni finished a solid 4th tonight at Emerald Downs. It was her first race in over six months against a pretty strong field.

3-31-17

Astronomy finished 5th in her race today at Fair Grounds. She was uncharacteristically put in a stalking position early. She ran along well, but had nothing left for the drive to the finish.

She will face a pretty good field but will look to keep her string of good runs going and hope for a little racing luck. 


2-4-17

Astronomy held on for 2nd tonight in her claiming route race. She broke good and was a little closer to the pace along the back stretch.

She held off the hard charging third place finisher, but the slow pace and easy early fractions for the leaders proved too much to overcome. 


2-1-17

Astronomy is the 9/5 morning line favorite for her race on Saturday at Delta Downs. She looks to be in a good spot for her first run of the year.

 

1-27-17

Astronomy was the beaten post time favorite tonight, closing out the year with a good 2nd place finish. She was taken back early, but made up good ground along the backstretch. She caught a bit of traffic as they turned for home and unfortunately had to go four wide on the turn. She just had too much to do tonight late to challenge for the win. Hopefully, the jock can put her in a better position next out.


12-28-16

12-13-16

Trinni will make her next start in race #7 on Sunday, December 18th at Turf Paradise. The Allowance race will be run at a distance of six furlongs.

12-11-16

When asked for run down the stretch, she responded gamely picking off horses as she targeted the leader. She hit the wire with the favorite, losing by a nose in a photo finish. It was a good run as she appeared to enjoy her return to sprinting.


11-26-16

Sure Sweet finished last in his race today. He broke sharp and took the lead. He set the early pace and led the field to the top of the stretch. When asked for run down the lane, he did not respond. It was good to see him flash speed in a race. He just has to learn how to finish. We will see how he comes out of the race and plan accordingly. 


11-23-16

11-20-16

11-16-16

Astronomy finished 2nd in her race tonight at Delta Downs. She was a little closer to the leaders tonight, but true to her form she was near the back early. She responded well when asked to run, but was unable to catch the winner. It was a good effort tonight.

Astronomy is the 2/1 morning line second choice for her race next week at Delta Downs. She is in an excellent position to contend for the win.


11-11-16

11-9-16

11-8-16

Astronomy will make her next start in race #6 on Wednesday, November 16th at Delta Downs. The claiming race will be run at a distance of one mile.

1-1-15
Smartlightandquit showed little interest in sprinting. He finished 8th over the wet Delta Downs track today. Hopefully, he comes back good and returns to his competitive class and distance for his next start.

12-27-14
Smartlightandquit is 15/1 on the morning line for his race next week. On the step up in class, the race looks to be pretty open. A lukewarm 3/1 choice is the favorite.

12-23-14
Smartlightandquit will make his next start on Thursday, January 1, 2015 in race #4 at Delta Downs. The race will be a slight step up in class and will be run at the two turn distance of six and one half furlongs. The 2nd place and 4th place finishers in his last race have both come back to win their next starts, so he appears to have exited a good race. He will have veteran Joe Patin aboard once again, when they break from post position #7 in the ten horse field.

12-14-14
Yonyoncomegetusome breezed three furlongs in :37 flat over a fast track this morning at Fair Grounds. His time was the 3rd fastest of the 22 horses who worked the distance. The blinkers off work may be the key to getting him back on track.

12-6-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 6th in his race tonight. He ran hard with the leaders early but had nothing left for the drive. While the race was a deep drop in class, it was a good field as the top three finishers were all claimed. Hopefully, he can return to his competitive form and find a manageable field for his next start.

12-5-14
Smartlightandquit rallied late to finish 3rd in his race tonight. He took back early and settled in comfortably along the rail.

12-4-14

12-2-14
Smartlightandquit is 12/1 on the morning line in race #4 on Friday, December 5th. The Equibase handicapping guide, "Off to the Races" has him selected as one of the contenders for the one mile race. 

11-29-14
Smartlightandquit will make his second start of the meet in race #4 at Delta Downs on Friday, December 5th. The low-level claiming race will be run at a distance of one mile. He will break from post #6 in the ten horse field with one of the meet's leading jockeys in the saddle in Joe Patin. 
 
11-14-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 8th in his race tonight. The route distance did not appear to his liking. He broke well, but was never a threat. He may be in need of some class relief, as the Delta Downs circuit is much more challenging than the Louisiana Downs and Retama circuits where he experienced his last competitive runs. Hopefully, he comes back good.

11-12-14
Smartlightandquit did not draw into the field from the also eligible list for his race tonight. He should be ready to go as other race options become available.

11-11-14
Yonyoncomegetusome is listed at 8/1 on the morning line for his race on Friday, November 14th. It is a pretty balanced field. Hopefully, he can find a comfortable place early and have a strong run late. 

11-7-14
Yonyoncomegetusome is scheduled to make his next start in race #9 at Delta Downs on Friday, November 14th. The Louisiana-bred Allowance race will be run at a distance of one mile. The stretch out in distance should provide a slower and more favorable early pace. He will have jockey Jansen Melancon in the saddle once again when they break from post #6 in the ten horse field.

11-7-14
Smartlightandquit is 12/1 on the morning line for his race next week. If he is unable to draw into the final field from the also eligible list, he will possibly have an opportunity to run Saturday, November 15th, as a race with the same conditions is on the overnights and extras list.

11-5-14
Smartlightandquit has been entered to run in race #6 at Delta Downs on Wednesday, November 12th. The race is a one mile low level claiming race.

10-23-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 7th in his race tonight. He broke well, but trailed the field early. He made a small move late, but was never involved.

10-17-14
Smartlightandquit finished 5th in his race tonight. He broke sharply and looked well placed, but the runaway winner won in dominating fashion. The Delta Downs bull ring can be a little tricky the first time out. Hopefully, he and jockey Carlos Nieto will gain from the experience.

10-16-14
Yonyoncomegetusome will make his Fall/Winter debut at Delta Downs in race #7 on Thursday, October 23rd. The Louisiana-bred Allowance race will be run at a distance of five furlongs.

Jockey Jansen Melancon has the mount, and they will break from post #4 in the ten horse field.

10-14-14

10-12-14
Our Foxford Hills Racing partnership has added Smartlightandquit to the racing stable in partnership with Horseplayers Racing Club. Smartlightandquit is a hard knocking chestnut gelding, who should fit well at Delta Downs for the Fall/Winter meet. He is by noted Louisiana-bred sire Toolighttooquit and out of the Summing mare Sum Smart Lady. Smartlightandquit is trained by Sam Breaux and will make his next start on Friday, October 17th in race #4.

9-5-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 3rd in his race tonight. He was well placed early and looked poised to run by the early speed at the top of the stretch.

9-2-14
Yonyoncomegetusome will make his next start on Friday, September 5th in race #2 at Retama Park in San Antonio, Texas.  The six furlong Starter Allowance race will be run over the main track.

In a change of distance, she will make her next start at Evangeline Downs on Saturday, August 16th in race #2 at a distance of one mile and 70 yards.

6-12-14
City Thymes broke slow once again. She spotted the field 10+ lengths running last most of the race, but true to her recent form, she rallied and closed strong, passing horses in the stretch to finish 6th. We plan to enter her tomorrow to run Friday, June 20th in a 6.5 furlong race.

4-18-14
My Kool Pal Colin is scheduled to run in training race #1 at the Evangeline Training Center tomorrow morning.  He will break from post position #6 in the seven horse field of unraced horses. The race represents a good test for our three year-old gelding.

The lightly raced six year-old mare has 12 career starts with three career wins. She finished 5th in her five and one-half furlong sprint tonight, losing by a little over four lengths to the winner, but she should do much better with some added distance.  

4-5-14
My Kool Pal Colin breezed four furlongs in :51.80 over a fast track in company at Evangeline Downs this morning. It was a good work after having a few weeks away from the track. We will see how he comes back and plan his next work accordingly. 
 
3-31-14

4-26-13

He broke through the starting gate before it was set to open, but once he was reset and the race began, Colby put him in a good stalking second place position where he sat in the early to mid stages of the race.

3-18-13

Shreveport Royale will slowly move back into training sometime in January. The extended time off has allowed him to mature  both physically and mentally. We are excited about his upcoming 2013 racing campaign.  

9-8-12
Shreveport Royale will be scratched from his race today. He galloped earlier this week and did not come back as well as we would have liked. We will plan for his next start as his health permits.

9-5-12
Shreveport Royale is scheduled to make his next start in the 13th race on Saturday, September 8th at Louisiana Downs. The Maiden Special Weight race is a six furlong sprint to be run over the main track. The race will cap off a stakes filled day of races to be run onSuper Derby Day at Louisiana Downs.  We will have veteran jockey Jose Riquelme in the saddle when they break from post position #4 in the 12 horse field. It is a good field of well bred two year-olds and will serve as a good test for our promising young colt.

9-2-12
Shreveport Royale breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :49.8 yesterday at Evangeline Downs over a fast track. His four furlong breeze ranked 11th fastest of the 25horses who worked the distance. The work was done without company and served as a good tune-up for our targeted Maiden Special Weight race next week. Unfortunately, he did not draw into the race but will continue to train as we explore our options for his next race.

8-25-12
Shreveport Royale  breezed three furlongs in :35.6 this morning over a track rated "good" at Evangeline Downs. Today's work was easily the best of his career. It was also the fastest breeze of the 11 horses who worked the three furlong distance earning him the "Bullet" three furlong work of the day. If he comes back good from today's work, we will look to enter him next weekend for a race scheduled to run Saturday, September 8th. He continues to flash the talent we saw in him earlier this year. If he remains healthy, he will have a great opportunity to run to his pedigree.

8-19-12
Shreveport Royale completed another good week of training. He is scheduled to have his first official breeze since his layoff next weekend. The plan is to work him three furlongs at Evangeline Downs.
 
8-6-12
Shreveport Royale has completed several good gallops over the training track. If  all goes as planned, he should have his next official breeze in a couple of weeks. He is working well, and the time off in June and July will have him fresh for his next start. 
 
7-27-12
Shreveport Royale is slowly moving back into training full-time after a little down time for our rapidly developing young colt. He began jogging this week, but should progress to galloping regularly fairly soon. The early plan is to race him once more before the summer racing season ends.
 
6-1-12
Shreveport Royale finished a solid 6th in his first race just 9 lengths from the winner. He broke sharp and alert from the starting gate but was taken back a bit. His trip was a little wider than we would have liked, but he ran very well down the stretch. He should progress well from this race experience.

5-27-12
Shreveport Royale has been intalled at morning line odds of  20/1 for his Maiden Special Weight (MSW) sprint. Our trainer Darren Jones and jockey Brandon Menard have brought the promising young colt along nicely, and he is more than ready for his first race.  
 
5-25-12
Shreveport Royale will make his first start on Friday, June 1st in race #3 at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) four and one half furlong sprint for two year olds. He will break from post position #9 in the ten horse field with apprentice jockey Brandon Menard aboard. The race will be a good first test for our promising young colt. He has made good progress in his training and fits well in this field of maidens.

5-24-12
Shreveport Royale breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :51 flat at Evangeline Downs. His time was 11th fastest of the 25 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. Our promising young colt is the lone horse remaining in our stable. We will stick with him and see where he takes us.

5-24-12
Satoshi's Daemon broke a little better from the gate today, and jockey Brandon Menard tried to get her involved early. Unfortunately, she appeared to want nothing to do with racing. We have made the decision to discontinue her racing career with our stable. We wish her new connections good luck in their pursuits with the three year old filly.

5-24-12
Anatolia broke good from the gate and was well placed throughout the early portion of the race. The race provided some very slow easy fractions, which appeared to set up pretty well for her usual closing run. Unfortunately, she did not respond when asked to run. After the race, she was moved to a farm where she will begin a new career as a trail horse. She was one of our more successful horses, and we wish her well in her new home.

5-17-12
Satoshi's Daemon will make her second career start in the 3rd race at Evangeline Downs on Thursday, May 24th. The maiden claiming race is set for a distance of six and one-half furlongs. She will have up and coming apprentice jockey Brandon Menard in the saddle when they break from post position #4 in the 13 horse field. We are looking for a better effort this time out from our young three year-old filly.  

5-17-12
Anatolia will make her next start in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs on Thursday, May24th. The race is a claiming race for non-winners of three lifetime races and will be run at a distance of one mile and seventy yards. We will have her regular jockey Carlos Marquez back in the saddle for the route race, as the two look to score their third win together when they break from post position #5 in the eight horse field.

5-13-12
Shreveport Royale worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.26 over a deep fast track at the Evangeline Training Center. He broke good from the gate with one other horse and easily outpaced his rival to the wire. He also had a great schooling session in the paddock on raceday Friday, May 11th (see YouTube). He took in the atmosphere very well and looked eager to join the competition. If he continues his steady progress in his training, we are pointing him to a race in early June. 

5-13-12
Satoshi's Daemon had a good work at the Folsom Training Center and looks to be ready to make another start. We entered her in a seven furlong race, but we were unlucky on the final draw as she did not make the 14 horse field. She will continue to train as we look for another good spot for her second career run.

5-12-12
Anatolia finished a disappointing 8th last night. After direct instructions to the jockey in the paddock to come off the pace, our jockey chose to go for the lead out of the gate.Anatolia is a classic closer, and barring a mid-career change in style, she will always do her best running late. We missed a great opportunity in this very manageable race, but we will look to put her in more capable hands in her next run.
 
5-5-12
Anatolia is scheduled to make her next start in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, May 11th. The one mile race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of three lifetime races. She will break from post position #6 in the eight horse field. We are turning to jockey David "Chip" Bourque for the Friday race. Chip has been consistently ranked in the top-10 jockey standings at Evangeline Downs over the last few years. The race provides an excellent opportunity for our hard charging filly to pick-up her third career win.
  
5-4-12
Shreveport Royale breezed in company with older horses this morning at Evangeline Downs, and he more than held his own. He worked three furlongs over a fast track in :37.4 in just his second official breeze. His time was the 11th fastest of the 27 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. Our promising young colt is making good progress and gives every indication that he will do well in his juvenile campaign.

5-4-12
Satoshi's Daemon caught a muddy track for her debut on Wednesday. She broke a little slow, but was able to gather herself and make a run along the rail. As the race progressed, it was easy to see that today was not going to be her day. She steadied on the final turn and retreated down the stretch. We will make a few adjustments and hope for a better racing surface in her next out. We are looking to run her back pretty quickly.

4-28-12
Satoshi's Daemon is listed at odds of 30-1 for her career debut on Wednesday, May 2nd. On paper, the race appears to be pretty wide open and provides her with an opportunity to get her career off to a strong start.

4-28-12
Anatolia closed well to finish 4th last night. She broke alert from the gate and settled very well near the tail end of the compact field. The leader and eventual winner was able to get an uncontested lead and some nice fractions throughout the one mile run. The pace scenario did not set-up quite as we had hoped, as we would have liked to see them go a little faster early, which would have been more favorable for the closers like Anatolia. As they turned for the finish line, she was last but kicked it in late losing by a little more than five lengths to the winner and losing by a head in a photo finish for 3rd place. We are more than happy with her first run after the layoff, and any duplication of last night's effort should land her in the winner's circle soon. We will see how she comes out of the race and plan accordingly. 

4-26-12
Satoshi's Daemon will make her racing career debut on Wednesday, May 2nd at Evangeline Downs in Race #5. The six furlong sprint is a Louisiana-bred Special Maiden Claiming race to be run over the main track. The race is made up of first-time starters and some lightly raced foes. She will break from post position #3 in the full field of14 horses with veteran jockey Carlos Marquez aboard. She has been training well, and if she runs to her pedigree she should be competitive in this field.

4-25-12
Anatolia is listed at morning line odds of 15-1 for her race on Friday. The morning line luke-warm favorite is listed at odds of 3-1. If the pace scenario sets up for her, she should be closing late.
  
4-21-12
Anatolia breezed five furlongs in company in 1:02.60 over a fast track at Evangeline Downs this morning. Her time was 10th fastest of the 26 horses who worked the five furlong distance. After the work, we entered her in a Louisiana-bred Claiming race going one mile at Evangeline Downs. The route race will be race #9 on the racecard and will be run on Friday, April 27th. She has been training very well for her return to competition. We will be looking for another big effort, when she breaks from post position #3 in the 10 horse field with jockey Carlos Marquez aboard.

4-21-12
Satoshi's Daemon worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.60 over a fast track at Evangeline Downs with apprentice jockey Denny Velazquez in the saddle. She received her gate card after the work and is now ready for race entry. We will look to enter her next week to run at Evangeline Downs.

4-21-12
Shreveport Royale received his identification tattoo today. He also completed his first official breeze this morning on a fast track at Evangeline Downs. He was clocked in a time of:27.80 for the two furlong work. Unfortunately, the exercise rider did not start working him until he was well past the two furlong starting mark, therefore the time is not reflective of how well he worked. We clocked him in :12 and change for the final furlong. It was a very good work for his first breeze.  A short video of him finishing up today's work can be found on our YouTube channel.

4-7-12
Anatolia breezed four furlongs this morning in :50.80 without company over a fast track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was 38th fastest of the 71 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. She got off to a bit of a slow start, but true to her form she finished very strong. This was her first official work after a well deserved Spring Break. She is making good progress in preparation for the start of the Evangeline Downs meet which begins on April 18th.

4-7-12
The Jockey Club has approved the name Shreveport Royale for our promising new two year-old colt. He galloped a little over a mile today at Evangeline Downs in company. Towards the end of the work the exercise rider let him run down the stretch. He flashed a good turn of foot and finished the work willingly as he easily outpaced his rival. We will keep him healthy and continue to monitor his steady progress.

3-31-12
Satoshi's Daemon  breezed three furlongs this morning in :38.20 over a track rated goodat Fair Grounds Race Course. Her time earned her the bulletwork of the day for three furlongs, as she covered the distance the fastest of the eight horses who worked today. She worked very good without company and should continue to improve after today's work.

3-25-12
When the auctioneer's hammer fell after the final bid on Hip #29 at the 2012 John Franks Memorial Two Year-Old in Training Sale, Evans Thoroughbred Racing secured its first prospect from a sales auction. The two year-old colt is by graded stakes winner and multiple stakes winner Gigawatt. Our new prospect has a nice athletic build and comes from a strong male line of stakes winners on both the sire and dam side of his pedigree. Be sure to visit our YouTube page for a few short videos of our promising young colt.

3-25-12
Satoshi's Daemon spent the morning schooling in the starting gate. She will look to work from the gate next weekend at Fair Grounds Race Course.

3-25-12
Green Card James has been sold. We wish the new connections good luck with the big California-bred gelding.

3-18-12
Satoshi's Daemon completed her first official breeze this morning when she worked three furlongs in :40.6 over a fast track at Fair Grounds Race Course. After getting off to a slow start over the first furlong, she picked up the pace and passed one horse in the turn and another two down the stretch beating them to the line by a little more than a length. She galloped out strong and finished up the morning work in good fashion. We will look to breeze her again next weekend with another horse for the entire work.
 
3-10-12
Satoshi's Daemon completed a sharp work this morning. She received her identification tattoo today and will look to earn her gate card soon. She is progressing well and gaining confidence with each work.

3-3-12
Satoshi's Daemon had a strong gallop this morning over the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. She looked very comfortable on the big track and continues to show the promise we saw in her late last year.

3-2-12
Anatolia finished 10th in her final race of the Delta Downs meet. She broke well and could have challenged for the lead early, but was taken slightly back. She was second, just one length behind the leader at the half. As they turned for the finish, she could not keep pace and was well beaten. She will get some well deserved downtime and look to come back fresh for the Evangeline Downs meet which begins in April.

2-26-12
Satoshi's Daemon had a good gallop this morning at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. Our now three year-old Louisiana-bred filly continues to develop, and we look forward to the start of her racing career. 
 
2-25-12
Anatolia is the 5/1 morning line fourth choice for her race on Thursday.  She had a nice work this morning for trainer Darren Jones and looks to be ready to go. If she gets a favorable trip, she looks poised to string together two consecutive good races.
   
2-24-12
Anatolia will make her next start in race #6 at Delta Downs on Thursday, March 1st. The one mile race is for non-winners of three lifetime races. She will break from post position #2in the ten horse field. Carlos Marquez will be in the saddle for the race and will look to continue the success the two have built together. In his four mounts, he has won two races aboard our hard charging filly. We are looking for another strong effort on Thursday night.

2-21-12
We will look to the John Franks Memorial Two Year Old in Training Sale to acquire our next horse. Each horse who passes through the sales ring will be eligible to run in the John Franks Memorial Sales Stakes in September, which has a guaranteed purse of$60,000 for both the fillies and the colts and geldings divisions. We are in the process of putting together a budget as we go through a careful examination of each horse's pedigree and prepare our list of horses we plan to examine more closely during the days prior to the sale. The sale will be held on Sunday, March 25th at Evangeline Downs.

2-15-12
Anatolia came out of her winning run in good condition. She put in a huge effort and looks to be ready to tackle non-winners of three races in her next start.

2-11-12
Anatolia Runs All Out for Victory!! Over a muddy racing surface at Delta Downs,  Anatolia picked up her second career win. She broke sharp and alert from the gate and was well placed around the first turn, as she sat just four lengths from the leader after the quarter pole. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, put her in more of a stalking position as opposed to her normal far off the pace running style. The decision would prove to be a wise one, as she continued to gain on the leader at the half way mark. At the three-quarters pole, her momentum moved her into first place with a clear two length lead, but she would have work to do before this night was over. As they turned for home, she maintained the lead, but the cavalry charge was set to challenge her for the lead. The track announcer declared, "This one's wide open!" Marquez engaged her attention late, as she put her head down, refocused and ran all out for the win! He gave us a very confident ride in very difficult racing conditions on a night were the early speed was holding. Trainer Darren Jones and his team did a great job of getting her more than ready to run last night. She was alert, on her toes, and showed that she is a maturing race horse who has learned what she needs to do to be a winner. We will check her condition over the next few days and plan accordingly.

2-8-12
Green Card James ran a disappointing 8th in his first run over the Delta Downs surface tonight. He broke well but was never involved. The run was a bit of a head scratcher, but we will look to make some adjustments before giving him another opportunity.

2-8-12
Anatolia has been installed as the 7/2 morning line second choice by the oddsmakers for her Friday race. If she gets a good trip, she looks to have a solid opportunity to pick-up her second career win.

2-3-12
Anatolia will make her next start in the 9th race at Delta Downs on Friday, February 10th. The one mile race is for non-winners of two lifetime races. She will break from post position#10 in the ten horse field. The race will mark the return of Carlos Marquez to the saddle. We are looking for them to team up for a big Friday run.
 
2-1-12
Green Card James will make his first start for Evans Thoroughbred Racing in the 8th race at Delta Downs on Wednesday, February 8th. The race is a claiming race at a distance of one mile. He will break from post position #6 in the ten horse field with jockey Carlos Marquez in the saddle. The veteran horse is training well for trainer Darren Jones and looks to be well placed for his first start at Delta Downs.

2-1-12
Green Card James and Anatolia were unable to draw into the final fields for their races on tomorrow. Green Card James will be re-entered today for a race next Wednesday andAnatolia will be re-entered Friday for a race the following Friday. Hopefully, we will have better luck at the entry box next time out.
  
1-26-12
Anatolia is on the Also-Eligible list for race #9 at Delta Downs on February 2nd. The race will cover one mile over the main track.  We will need one horse from the main body of the field to scratch at final entry in order for her to make the race. The race appears to be a good spot for her, but we will have to wait and see if we are able to draw into the final field. 
  
1-26-12
Green Card James is on the Also-Eligible list for race #6 at Delta Downs on February 2nd.The one mile race will be run over the main track. In order for him to draw into the race, we will need two horses from the main body of the field to scratch at final entry. The race looks like an excellent spot for his debut with us, but we will have to wait and see if we are able to draw into the Thursday race. 
 
1-21-12
We have added 2006 California-bred gelding Green Card James to our stable. He comes to us with three career wins in 23 starts and over $72,000 in career earnings. His most recent win came in a route race at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans in December. We look forward to watching him compete at Delta Downs and this Spring at Evangeline Downs.

1-18-12
Satoshi's Daemon is showing good improvement on the farm for the training group in Poplarville. As she continues to develop both physically and mentally, we will monitor her progress and look forward to her first official work and an exciting three year-old racing campaign.
  
1-15-12
Anatolia finished 5th in her extended seven furlong sprint race on yesterday. She broke well and stayed three to five lengths from the leader for most of the race. In the final stretch, she ran well finishing a little over 6 lengths behind the winner. We will look to return her back to her usual route race in her next start.
 
1-7-12
Anatolia breezed four furlong in :51.13 over a fast track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. She will make her next start on Saturday, January 14th  in race #9 at Delta Downs. The seven furlong claiming race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of two lifetime races. We will have jockey Junior Inirio in the saddle once again when they break from post position #9 in the 10 horse field. She continues to improve and looks to be well placed for the Saturday run.

12-31-11
Grand Princess has been retired from racing. She will move on to a career as a broodmare.

12-17-11
Anatolia finished an impressive 2nd in a good field of Louisiana-bred fillies and mares tonight. Trainer Darren Jones and his team had her primed and ready to put in a big effort, and she did not disappoint. She broke sharply from the gate, and jockey Junior Inirio guided her immediately to the rail and settled in nicely. At the half way mark, they sat patiently in fifth place about eight lengths from the dueling leaders. After completing three-quarters of a mile, Junior asked her to make a move, and she responded accordingly. She began picking off rivals and moved into second place at the top of the stretch. She ran on gamely, easily maintaining her second place position by six-plus lengths over the third place finisher. She put in a huge effort, but could not reach the 5 year-old winning mare who won handily. It was a good bounce back race and a definite confidence builder. We will check her condition over the next few days and determine if she will get one more race in during her 3year-old campaign or look to run her next year as a 4 year-old. 

12-10-11
Anatolia completed a good four furlong breeze in :53.68 this morning at the Evangeline Training Center over a fast track. She will make her next start on Saturday, December 17th  in race #2 at Delta Downs. The one mile claiming race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of two lifetime races. We will have jockey Junior Inirio in the saddle when they break from post position #2 in the eight horse field. She continues to train well and should be competitivewith this field.

12-9-11
Satoshi's Daemon arrived safely at the farm in Poplarville, Mississippi. After her inital evaluation and a little maintenance work, the training team will quickly move her into race training and begin building her confidence on the race track.

12-8-11
Satoshi's Daemon will be moved to the farm in Poplarville, Mississippi. She should arrive some time Friday morning where she will continue her training. She continues to progress very well physically, but her mental development is still a work-in-progress. The promising filly has a wealth of talent and has a very bright future ahead.
 
11-24-11
Anatolia finished 10th in her race last night. She was a well placed 6th at the half way mark just three lengths from the leader, but she did not respond when asked to run late. After the race we had her examined, and we may have determined the reason for the poor performance. We will continue to evaluate her and decide on the best course of action.

11-19-11
Satoshi's Daemon galloped very good in company at the Evangeline Training Center today. Her physical development is ahead of her racing knowledge, but we will continue to drill her on those things she will need to master before she is ready to go racing. 
 
11-19-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :53.18 at the Evangeline Training Center over the fast main track. This was her second work since coming back from a little layoff. We will check her condition and look to get a few more works in her before looking to race in December. 
 
11-18-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Wednesday, November 23rd at Delta Downs in race #9. The Louisiana-bred one mile claiming race will be run over the main track. We will have Carlos Marquez in the saddle again when they break from post position #4 in the ten horse field. We are looking for another strong effort after the class drop. 

11-6-11
Grand Princess has been given some additional down time. We will look to work her officially again in a few weeks before looking to race.
 
11-5-11
Anatolia ran 6th last night in her one mile claiming race. She caught a strong field of  out-of-state runners. The winner was a 5 year-old Kentucky-bred, who was easily the class of the field. Our jockey took Anatolia well off the pace early and tried to make one big run at the end. They passed a few, but with the bull ring that is Delta Downs, the finish line comes quickly. She established a new career best Equibase Speed figure for the third consecutive race, as she showed no problem running back after only nine days of rest. We will give her a little more down time and look to place her in the best position to be successful in her next race.

11-1-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Friday, November 4th at Delta Downs in race #9. The one mile race will be run over the main track and will mark the return of Carlos Marquez to the saddle when they break from post position #1 in the field of eight horses. We are hopeful that she has an uneventful trip, as she fits well with this field of fillies and mares.

10-31-11
Satoshi's Daemon is training well and continues her development as a racehorse. Provided she continues her development and makes continued progress, she will have her first official work on November 19th or November 26th.  She is progressing well after her first full month on the training farm.

10-26-11
Anatolia finished 7th tonight against a strong field of Louisiana-bred fillies. Unfortunately, our scheduled jockey was unable to ride, however Junior Inirio stepped in for the mount. They broke alertly and were a well placed 5th along the rail through the first half of the race. As they approached the final turn, they began to make a forward move. At the top of the stretch, they encountered a wall of horses. Inirio decided to swing her wide and make a run. Unfortunately, she lost a little momentum and flattened out in the final drive. Her run was more than respectable in this Allowance and Stakes caliber field. We will check her condition and look to run her back again on a slight class drop.

10-22-11
Grand Princess breezed three furlongs in :38.43 at the Evangeline Training Center  over the fast main track. The breeze was her first official work since returning to training. We will check her condition and plan her training accordingly.

10-20-11
Anatolia will make her Delta Downs debut in race #4 on October 26th in a Louisiana-bred Allowance race traveling one mile over the main track. We will have nationally ranked jockey Orlando Mojica in the saddle when they break from post position #1 in the 10 horse field. The race will represent the biggest challenge of her racing career to-date, but she is well rested, training well and is more than ready to meet the challenge.

10-12-11
Anatolia breezed five furlongs over the fast track in 1:06 at the Evangeline Training Center in preparation for race entry at Delta Downs this week.
  
10-8-11
Our racing stable is progressing nicely as we move into the 2011 Fall racing season. Trainer Darren Jones has Anatolia primed and ready to make race entry during the opening week of the Delta Downs Meet. Our newest addition,  Satoshi's Daemon, is continuing her breaking and conditioning training as she is slowly learning what it will take to become a successful racehorse. Grand Princess is enjoying a little downtime, but will move back into training in a few weeks and will be ready to show her signature early speed in her next start. We are looking forward to an exciting racing season.

9-26-11
We are excited about the addition of Satoshi's Daemon to our racing stable. She is a 2009Louisiana-bred filly by Southern States who is the son of stakes-placed winner Southern Halo who was the leading sire in Argentina 7 times while siring 170 stakes winners and 19champions. The dam of our new prospect is Honalua Honey who broke her maiden on the turf with Maiden Special Weight company. She has produced four other foals of racing age with all becoming winners. Our new addition is a versatile prospect with a bright racing future.

9-23-11
Anatolia came out of her winning effort in great shape and ready to run again. We tried to make race entry on several occasions before the close of the Louisiana Downs meet, but unfortunatly none of our race selections made the race day card. She will continue to train in preparation for the Delta Downs meet which begins in mid-October.

Anatolia Wins!!!! In her sixth career start, Anatolia broke her maiden winning the one mile and seventy yards route race in impressive fashion. She broke sharply from the gate but was unhurried early. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, allowed her to relax and settle during the early part of the race. After the half way mark, she began to pick up the pace and make her move, picking off horses one by one. At the top of the stretch, she took a slight lead, and at that point it was clear that it was going to be a two horse race for the win. With each stride,Anatolia appeared to gain more confidence, as her lone rival resigned that she would be second best tonight. Anatolia crossed the finish line 1 3/4 lengths ahead of the second place finisher and 11 1/2 lengths ahead of the third place finisher. We will check her condition over the next few days to make certain she is in good health after the huge effort and then determine if we will try for a race at Louisiana Downs.   

9-2-11
Anatolia will make her next start in the 11th race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, September 9th. The race is a one mile and seventy yards route race to be run over the main track. Veteran jockey Carlos Marquez will be aboard when they break from post position #9in the 11 horse field. She gave a big effort in her last race. The added distance and slower pace should allow her to be closer to the lead early and position her for a strong late run.

9-1-11
Grand Princess was scratched by the track veterinarian less than one minute before the race was set to start. With odds of 7/2 and sitting as the second choice by the betting public, GP was set to put in a big effort. Unfortunately, she was not going to get her chance this night. The ultimate winner of the race has the same running style as GP. She went straight to the front and did not look back. It was difficult to watch the race, because GP had beaten the winner by 2 lengths when they faced each other on May 20th.  We will review our options with the speedy filly and plan accordingly.

8-29-11
Our horses have been moved to Traders Rest Farm, a full service training facility in Carencro, Louisiana, where they will continue their training. Both horses are doing well and appear to be quickly adapting to the new environment.

8-26-11
Grand Princess has been installed as the morning line third choice at odds of 4-1 for her race on Thursday, September 1st. The return of John Jacinto to the saddle and a slight drop in class gives her a great opportunity to break her maiden in the five furlong sprint.

8-26-11
Anatolia broke well from the starting gate tonight. She was well placed along the rail, as she let the speed horses duel on the front end. As they turned for home, she maintained her rail position and began to make a late move. She managed to weave her way through traffic to finish a solid 4th, a little over 6 lengths behind the winner and just 1/2 length behind the third place finisher. We will try to stretch her out just a little more in her next race in order to take advantage of her strong late kick.

8-25-11
Grand Princess is entered to run on Thursday, September 1st in race #8. The race will be a five furlong sprint run over the main track. Veteran jockey John Jacinto will return for his second mount aboard GP when they break from post position #6 in the 12 horse field. An early review of the race appears to place GP in a favorable position in this field of maidens.

8-20-11
Anatolia will make her next start in the 10th race on Friday, August 26th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a five and one-half furlong sprint to be run over the main track. We will have apprentice jockey Thomas Porche, III in the saddle when they break from post position#1 in the 12 horse field. We are expecting a big effort after some extended time off.
 
8-18-11
Grand Princess  was not able to get the early lead as she did in some of her previous races. She broke a little slow, but was well ridden early as she was able to settle along the rail. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, had her placed 4th as they turned for the finish, but the winner was much the class of the race. The winner won by 9 lengths over the second place finisher, with Grand Princess finishing 5th beaten by 11 lengths. We will check her condition over the next few days and see if one final run for the 2011 Evangeline Downs meet is possible. 

8-13-11
Grand Princess came out of her last race in good condition. She will make her next start on Thursday, August 18th in the 1st race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Claiming sprint traveling five furlongs over the main track. She will have capable jockey Carlos Marquez in the saddle when they break from post position #6 in the eight horse field. She is listed at morning line odds of 12-1. With her early speed running style, the shorter distance will give her a better opportunity of reaching the line first. 
 
8-11-11
Grand Princess broke from the starting gate alertly and flashed her usual early speed. She went straight to the front and was able to take a full two length lead after four furlongs. At the top of the stretch, the cavalry charge began. She fought on gamely at the end finishing3rd against a good field of maidens. We will check her condition and look to get one more run in before the meet ends.

8-5-11
Grand Princess will make her next start on Thursday, August 11th in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Claiming race going six furlongs over the main track. We have secured the services of one of the track's top jockeys in John Jacinto. They will break from post position #2 in the 13 horse field. She continues to train well and looks well placed in this field of maiden claimers. 

8-5-11
Anatolia was scratched from her race today. She had a small accident in her stall earlier this week, and we chose not to run her until she has fully recovered. If all goes as planned, we will look to enter her in another race next week.

7-30-11
Anatolia will return to racing on Friday, August 5th in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Louisiana Bred Maiden Claiming race going one mile over the main track. We will have jockey Roberto Villafan in the irons when they break from post position #7 in the10 horse field.  

7-30-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :51.94 on a fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center. We are looking to make race entry sometime next week.

7-25-11
Tensas Gray Girl has been sold. Unfortunately, the former stakes winner did not get an opportunity to run for us. We wish her well in her new career.

7-23-11
Anatolia breezed three furlongs from the starting gate in :37.4 over a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was fourth fastest of the 18 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. After some time off for rest and further physical development, she appears poised to resume her racing career. We are pointing her to a race scheduled for the first week of August.

7-20-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed four furlongs in :52 on a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was fifth fastest of the 11 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. Unfortunately, the representatives for the State Veterinarian chose not to approve her for racing. We will monitor her condition and evaluate our options on her future as a race horse. 
 
7-13-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :49.4 on a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was second fastest of the seven horses who breezed the four furlong distance.

7-2-11
Tensas Gray Girl was scratched by the veterinarian during the pre-race examination before the Louisiana Showcase Distaff. She is in great shape, and hopefully will get an opportunity to compete on the track soon.

6-29-11
Tensas Gray Girl will make her first start for Evans Thoroughbred Racing in theLouisiana Showcase Distaff Stakes on Saturday, July 2nd. The stakes race is race #10on the Louisiana Showcase Night card of stakes races at Evangeline Downs. The one mile and seventy yards race will be run over the main track. We will have veteran jockey Roberto Villafan in the irons when they break from post position #8 in the nine horse field.
  
6-25-11
Tensas Gray Girl completed her last official breeze today in preparation for theLouisiana Showcase Distaff on Saturday, July 2nd at Evangeline Downs. She breezed four furlongs in :50.98 over a fast track at the Evangeline Training Center with jockey Roberto Villafan in the irons. Her time was 18th fastest of the 42 horses who breezed the four furlong distance.

6-22-11
Grand Princess finished a disappointing 10th in her five furlong sprint. The race was moved from the turf to the sloppy main track due to inclement weather. She did not take well to the off-track. We will look to race again soon under better weather conditions.  

6-18-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed five furlongs in 1:06.8 this morning at Evangeline Downs. The breeze was without company on the deep main track during the closing minutes of the final training session. The final nominations for the Louisiana Showcase Distaff closed with16 nominations. The field will be limited to 12 starters, with preference given to horses with the highest lifetime earnings. TGG ranks seventh in career earnings, which means barring injury we will enter the holiday weekend stakes race. Trainer Shelton LeBlanc has mapped out a training schedule which should have her peaking at race time. 

6-16-11
Grand Princess will make her next start on Wednesday, June 22nd in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) race going five furlongs over the turf course. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque riding for us again, and they will break from post position #8 in the ten horse field. She has been training well, and will look to break her maiden in her tenth career start.

6-15-11
Tensas Gray Girl has been nominated to the Louisiana Showcase Distaff. The$100,000 stakes race is for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares four years-old and upward, going one mile and seventy yards over the main track. She is a past stakes winner over the Evangeline Downs track, so stakes competition is not new to her. She continues to train well, and her stretch running style should fit well at this distance.

6-15-11
Grand Princess has been nominated to the Louisiana Showcase Ladies Sprint. The$100,000 stakes race is for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares three years-old and upward, going five and one-half furlongs on the main track. We will enter her in a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) five furlong sprint tomorrow, and if that race goes, we will not enter her in the stakes race. She will have other opportunities in the future, but for now we want to concentrate on breaking her maiden.
 
6-11-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed five furlongs in 1:04.39 over the fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. She is every bit the horse we thought she was when we decided to claim her. She continues to train well in anticipation of her first start with Evans Thoroughbred Racing.

6-11-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :52.18 over a fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. The four furlong breeze was a good maintenance work for her, until we identify another good spot for her next race.

6-9-11
Due to an administrative error, we have been notified by the racing stewards that Grand Princess will be scratched from her race on Saturday. It is unfortunate, because she was listed as the 5-1 morning line third choice and was picked to win by Brisnet Handicapping Service. We will shore up our administrative deficiencies, and look to find another good spot for GP very soon.

6-8-11
Grand Princess will make her next start in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs on Saturday, June 11th. The race in a $15,000 Maiden Claiming sprint going five and one-half furlongs over the main track. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle once again when they break from post position #9 in the nine horse field. Chip gave us a great ride in his last race aboard GP, when they just missed the win by 1/2 length. If she can duplicate the effort she gave in her last race, she has a great opportunity for the win.

5-27-11
Evans Thoroughbred Racing claimed Tensas Gray Girl in the 4th race at Evangeline Downs today from the successful barn of trainer Carl J. Woodley and Pegasus Stable. The big gray Louisiana-bred six-year old mare won the six furlong sprint with a strong late kick with little urging. She is by Ide who is one of the top Louisiana sires and out of the Cozzenemare Cool Kiss. She is a versitile, experienced stakes winner of over $130,000 and is able to sprint or run a route of ground. We are extremely blessed to have her as a part our stable. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to place her in a good spot for her first race with our stable. She will be trained by Shelton LeBlanc.

5-25-11
Anatolia broke quickly from the gate and was a well placed third after the first turn. She sat third throughout the backstretch, stalking the leaders to the top of the stretch. As the field turned for the finish, she looked primed to make a good final run. Unfortunately, she did not have anything left for the finish and crossed the line in 8th. We will check her condition over the next few days and evaluate our options on her future as a racehorse.

5-20-11
Grand Princess gave us the big effort we were looking for tonight in her six furlong sprint. She broke quickly from the gate and went straight to the lead, while setting a blistering pace. Our jockey, Chip Bourque, kept her to task as she out dueled rivals approaching the top of the stretch. She was able to take a clear lead in the stretch, and looked to capture the win as they turned for home. In mid stretch, she drifted out ever so slightly as the late runners approached. However, she finished in a very impressive dead heat for 2nd place, just missing the win by 1/2 length. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to put her in a similiar position for her next race.

5-19-11
Anatolia will make her next start at Evangeline Downs in the 10th race on Wednesday, May25th. The race is a Maiden Claiming race going one and one sixteenth miles. We will have veteran jockey Rex A. Stokes, III in the saddle for the route race. Rex is currently ranked in the top 5 in wins for the Evangeline Downs Meet. They will break from post position #9 in the nine horse field.

5-14-11
Grand Princess will make her next start in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, May 20th. The race is a six furlong sprint on the main track. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle when she breaks from post position #12 in the full field of 14 horses. She has been training well. With the adjustments we have made since her last race, we are looking for a big effort this time out.

5-14-11
Anatolia finished 11th in her race today beaten by 14 lengths. She broke well, but was checked after the first quarter mile. Through the turn, she could not get to the rail and was forced to take a wide trip. While the pace of the race was absent of speed, she still had difficulty keeping pace. We will look to make an aggressive class drop in her next race and stretch her out to at least one mile. She has always shown more stamina than speed, so hopefully a combination of the class drop and additional distance will allow her to be more competitive in her next start. 
 
5-11-11
Anatolia is scheduled to make her 2011 Evangeline Downs debut in the 3rd race on Saturday, May 14th. The six furlong race is a Special Accredited Maiden Claiming race for Louisiana Bred three year-old fillies. Veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque will be in the saddle for the Saturday afternoon sprint. They are slated to break from post position #9 in the full field of 14 horses.

5-7-11
Anatolia worked a two-minute mile over a fast track today at the Folsom Training Center. The track clockers picked her up at :38.95 for the final three furlongs. The work was not for time, but we were more than pleased with her willing finish. If she comes back in good condition, we will enter her next week for a race scheduled to run Saturday, May 14th.

4-24-11
Grand Princess broke well from the gate in her race yesterday and was a well placed third in the early going. As the field made the turn for the finish, she lacked the final kick needed to keep pace with the leaders and finished 9th. She appears to have come out of the race in good condition and should be able to run back soon.

4-20-11
Grand Princess will make her 2011 Evangeline Downs debut in the 11th race on Saturday, April 23rd. The race is a $5,000 Maiden Claiming race for fillies and mares going five furlongs over the main track. She will have veteran jockey Josh Romero in the saddle when they break from post position #11 in the 12 horse field.

4-8-11
Grand Princess breezed an easy three furlongs in :37.2 today at Evangeline Downs, with jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle. Her time was 6th fastest of the 14 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. If all goes as planned, we will look to enter her in a race scheduled to run in two weeks.

4-3-11
Anatolia galloped a little yesterday after taking a few weeks off to recover from a slight muscle pull in her shoulder. She was eager to get back to work, but we will gradually increase her workload over the next few weeks. If all goes well, she should be ready to race towards the end of the month.

3-19-11
Anatolia was scratched from her race today. She was still a little sore from her work last weekend, so we decided to give her a little more time. We will see if one more run is possible before the Fair Grounds Meet ends. If not, we will start preparing for the Evangeline Downs Meet which starts in April.
 
3-13-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Saturday, March 19th in the 11th race at Fair Grounds Race Course. The race is a Louisiana Special Maiden Claiming race for Louisiana-bred three year-old fillies. The five furlong sprint will be run over the main track. We will have veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque riding once again. They will break from post position #6 in the11 horse field. She has been training well and has matured as a race horse.  We are hopeful that she will be able to put it all together in her third career start.

3-13-11
Grand Princess had a rough go of it today. It started when we had to make an unexpected jockey change before the race. Once the race started after an hour long delay, her luck did not get any better. The #4 horse to her right stumbled out of the gate causing the jockey to fall off. The horse then veered into her path causing her to hesitate. She also encountered trouble on her left, when she was bumped by the #2 horse coming out of the gate. She trailed the field and moved up slightly, finishing 8th.  She will now start preparing for the Evangeline Downs Meet, which opens on April 6th.

3-12-11
Anatolia breezed four furlongs in company today over the fast main track at Fair Grounds. After trailing initially, she easily passed and outpaced her rivals covering the four furlong distance in :50 flat. We entered her in a race to be run on Friday, but unfortunately the race did not make the card. The race was placed on the Extras, so we will enter her again tomorrow for a race to be run on next Saturday.

3-10-11
Grand Princess will make her first start with Evans Thoroughbred Racing on March 13th in race #1 at Delta Downs. The race is a $20,000 Louisiana-bred Maiden Claiming sprint going five furlongs on the main track. We will have journeyman jockey Frederick Carmouche, Jr. in the irons for the race, and they will break from post position #3in the 10 horse field.
  
3-4-11
We have agreed to partner in the acquisition of 2007 Louisiana-bred filly Grand Princess. She is sired by Grand Appointment and out of Bag mare Miss Bagfire. She comes to us with six career starts and three second place finishes, which leaves all of her lifetime conditions intact. She ran against a good Maiden Special Weight field on March 2nd at Delta Downs, after a six month layoff. We will look to place her in a Maiden Claiming sprint with Louisiana-bred company in her next race.

2-27-11
Anatolia came out of her race in good shape. She enjoyed her day off yesterday with a little free time to run in field. She was back at work this morning in preparation for her final start of the Fair Grounds meet. We have identified a few good spots for her next run. If all goes well, we will get in some work with Chip in the saddle and look to race in a few weeks against Louisiana-bred company.

2-25-11
Anatolia broke well from the starting gate moving from 6th to 4th once the horses settled. Chip guided her on a nice rail path to the top of the stretch. Unfortunatly, she faced some pretty strong speed horses that stayed on well. She finished a tiring 6th, and did not show the late kick we saw in her last race. We will check her condition tomorrow, and if she comes back good we will look to get some morning works in her in a week or so with Chip in the saddle. We plan to get one more race in before the Fair Grounds meet ends, as we will look to return to the more accommodating confines of Louisiana-bred only company.

2-20-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Friday, February 25th in the 4th race at Fair Grounds Race Course.  The race is an open $12,500 Maiden Claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track. We will have veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the irons for the race. They will break from post position #1 in the 9 horse field. The early Brisnet program has her listed as the fourth selection based on previous speed ratings. She has worked diligently at the starting gate since her last race and should be competitive if she breaks well.
 
2-14-11
Anatolia galloped an easy mile yesterday. If all goes as planned, she will breeze from the starting gate at Fair Grounds this weekend. If she comes out of the work with no problems, we will make race entry later during the week.
  
1-29-11
Anatolia came out of her race in good shape. She will begin working on improving her break from the starting gate as we look for a good spot for her next race. 

1-27-11
Anatolia broke very slowly from the starting gate today and spotted the field at least five lengths. After the bad break, Trey Agilar allowed her to settle and slowly make up ground on the field. At the top of the stretch, she was over 16 lengths from the leader. Trey did not push her hard at the end, but guided her well down the stretch to finish 10th just 10 lengths from the leader. We will give her a little break and then back to work at the starting gate. If she can overcome her gate problem, she is going to be a very competitive racehorse.
 
1-23-11
Anatolia is listed at morning line odds of 20-1 for her debut. We made a change in jockey deciding to go with Trey Agilar who is having a very productive Fair Grounds meet. The field is made up of first-time starters and a number of lightly raced maidens.  With a good break from the gate and a little racing luck, she should be competitive.
 
1-22-11
Anatolia will make her first career start on Thursday, January 27th  in the 10th race at Fair Grounds Race Course. The race is a Louisiana Special Maiden Claiming race for three year old Louisiana-bred fillies. The five furlong sprint will be run over the main track. We will have veteran journeyman jockey Monica K. Stanley in the saddle for us. They are slated to break from post #9 in the 12 horse field.

1-20-11
Anatolia worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :51.40 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track. After today's work, she received her gate card and she is now eligible for race entry. Her break from the gate is still an area which needs much improvement, but it will come in time with repetition. We will enter her this weekend for a Louisiana-bred Maiden Claiming race to be run next week.  
 
1-9-11
Anatolia worked at Fair Grounds again today. The published work-out will show a time of :39.60 for three furlongs from the starting gate. However, today's work was solely focused on breaking from the gate and getting gate approved. Unfortunately, she still hesitated when the gate opened and the rider worked her two furlongs and slowed to a gallop for the final furlong as we instructed.  Ana has shown the speed and desire to compete, but she will have to improve her gate work before she is ready to go racing.
  
1-8-11
Anatolia worked three furlongs from the starting gate in :36.6 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track. While the work-out was her best to-date, she will need to improve her break from the starting gate before she is ready to race.

1-2-11
Anatolia worked three furlongs in :37.8 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track.  There are a few possible races in the latest condition book. We will see how she comes back after today's work and plan accordingly.

12-19-10
Anatolia worked four furlongs in :53.20 today at Fair Grounds. Today's work was really not for time. She worked behind another horse so that she could experience running with dirt kicked in her face. She did well and kept to task. We will see how she looks after today's work and determine if she is ready to enter this week. 

12-12-10
Anatolia completed her first official workout today at Fair Grounds. She breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :51.8 over the fast main track. After a little time off to recover from some soreness, she did well for her first official breeze. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to breeze her again in a week or so, as she prepares for a possible race at the end of the month.

On a sad note, our promising two-year old Wireline will not be able to continue training for a racing career due to problems with his knees. We hope to find him a new career.

11-20-10
Wireline breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.76 today at the Evangeline Training Center. His time ranked 39th of the 49 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. We are pointing him towards a race at Fair Grounds in early December. He will breeze one more time before we make race entry.

11-20-10
Anatolia will take a few more days off, as she works through some soreness in her shins. We do not want to overwork her, as she appears to have a bright racing future. This will set her back a little, but she should be able to gallop at Fair Grounds next weekend. The Fair Grounds work will also help her to get familiar with the track surroundings. When she is healthy and ready to go, the plan is to point her towards Louisiana-Bred Maiden Special Weight (MSW) competition.
  
11-10-10
Wireline breezed three furlongs from the starting gate in :39 today over a fast track at Evangeline Downs. The work-out was done without company. This was also his first official work from the stating gate, so we are pleased that he broke cleanly and ran well. We will enter him in a training race at Evangeline Training Center. The race is scheduled for Wednesday, November 17th. This race should give us an idea of where he is in his racing development.

10-30-10
Wireline breezed three furlongs in :38.92 today at the Evangeline Training Center. His time ranked 35th of the 40 horses who breezed the three furlong distance.  This was the first official workout for our promising 2 year-old in over six months, so he should improve in the coming weeks as he continues to train for his racing debut.

10-9-10
We are excited about the addition of Wireline to our racing stable. Wireline is a 2 year old Louisiana-Bred gelding by Wire Me Collect. Wire Me Collect is a multiple stakes winner with over $600,000 in lifetime earnings. He has sired several stakes winners and has over $3 million in progeny earnings. We are pointing Wireline to Fair Grounds Race Course for his racing debut where he will be trained by Shelton LeBlanc. 

10-8-10
Blazing Thunder continues to experience sever soreness. We have made the decision to retire him from racing. We will try to find him a good home with a new career.

9-10-10
Blazing Thunder was scratched from his race by the track veterinarian during the post parade prior to being loaded into the starting gate. After some recent setbacks, we will look to rebound at the Delta Downs meet in late October or early November.

9-8-10
Anatolia received her first set of horseshoes today. We are hopeful that she will be able to begin some official breezing in the next few weeks. The early plan is to have her ready for opening day at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, which is scheduled to start in late November on Thanksgiving Day.

9-4-10
Blazing Thunder worked four furlongs in :52.34 at the Evangeline Training Center today. This was his first official work-out on the slower training center surface. He lugged in towards the rail, which hurt his time, but he came out of the work in good condition. After the work-out, we entered him in a $20,000 Maiden Claiming race going 6 furlongs on the main track at Louisiana Downs in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. The race will be #5 on the Friday, September 10th program. We will have "hot" apprentice jockey Luis Negron riding for us, as we are slated to break from post #9 in the nine horse field.
 
8-28-10
Anatolia is slowly rounding into shape.  She is building her stamina on the 5/8th's track in Mississippi and also working on walking through the starting gate. She worked today at the Evangeline Training Center, and looked impressive for her first time on the "big" track. We will take it slowly with her, but we are hopeful that she will be able to compete as a two-year old later this year.

Blazing Thunder came up a little sore yesterday, so we decided to scratch him from tonight's race. After watching the race, it was unfortunate that we had to scratch him, as the fractions were very slow in a very weak field. We will look for similar conditions for his next race.

7-19-10
Blazing Thunder breezed three furlongs over the main track this morning at Evangeline Downs. He covered the three furlong distance in :38 flat. The work out was a very light breeze to check his condition for a possible next race. We will see how he looks over the next day or so.

6-17-10
Blazing Thunder broke much better from the gate today and was well placed through the back stretch. He was 5th at the top of the stretch and quickly made a move to 4th.

Blazing Thunder breezed four furlongs  from the starting gate at Evangeline Downs this morning in :53.4. Today's breeze was done without company. We will look to breeze him again next weekend.

We are pointing to an official work-out on Friday, April 2nd or Saturday, April 3rd.  

3-19-10
We have decided to move Toms Breeze to Trainer Shelton LeBlanc. Darren is a young upstart trainer who stables his horses at Pete LeBlanc Stables in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.  He will split training time between the fully equipped stable and the Evangeline Training Center.

Toms Breeze is steadily rounding into condition. She will begin some short work next week and hopefully complete an officially timed breeze in a few weeks. The first Evangeline Downs Condition Book is out, and the Louisiana-bred races will once again offer very lucrative purse money. Our now 2 Year-Old filly, Anatolia, is enjoying her time eating and growing on the farm. We are hopeful that she will be ready to begin the breaking process in May or early June. 
                                                                                                                                                                                      
2-4-10
Toms Breeze arrived at Pink Crown Farms on Sunday, January 31st. She is beginning to adapt to the daily routine at the training center. This 4 year-old chestnut filly by Thunder Breeze has good size and should be very competitive this spring with state-bred racing company.
 
1-11-1o
We have agreed to partner in the acquisition of 2006 Louisiana-bred filly Toms Breeze.  She is by sire THUNDER BREEZE and out of 11 race winner Crystal Manor.

12-5-09
Nile Tigress finished a disappointing 7th. She broke fairly well, but quickly retreated. She is most likely due for some extended well deserved rest, as she has had an aggressive training and racing schedule. We will check her condition and determine what is best for her.

Nile Tigress broke from the gate in pretty good fashion, but the leaders quickly got away from her. Unfortunately, she had to take a wide trip the entire race finishing in 8th position. We will give her a few weeks of rest before racing again, as we have had a pretty aggressive racing schedule over the last month or two.
 
11-5-09

Nile Tigress was well placed throughout the race, but did not have her usual late kick needed to reach the front runners, as she finished 6th. This will conclude the racing meet for us at Hoosier Park. Tianna Richardville did a great job of training Nile, and Rodney Prescott did an excellent job in the saddle. We will give Nile a few days off before she prepares to travel to New Orleans where we have decided to compete at the Fair Grounds Race Course and possibly Delta Downs in Vinton, Louisiana. Nile will be trained by Elliott Necaise at Fair Grounds.

10-11-09

Nile Tigress stalked the early speed horse but had nothing for the eventual 9 length winner. At the top of the stretch, she sat in 2nd place and battled gamely to maintain her 2nd place position, beating the 3rd place finisher by 1 length. This was an excellent effort on only 7 days of rest. We will check her condition over the next few days and determine if we race one more time before the meet ends.10-9-09

Our jockey, Rodney Prescott, guided her beautifully as she had to avoid a horse drifting into her path. In the final stages of the race, she surged to the front passing her final two rivals before crossing the finish line first by 1 3/4lengths.  Our Trainer, Tianna Richardville, has done an outstanding  job of continuing to develop Nile's full racing potential. We will check her condition and look to run again soon.
10-2-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #4 at Hoosier Park, which is scheduled to run on Sunday, October 4th. The race is a $5,000 claiming race going 6 furlongs on the main track with a purse of $10,500.  She will break  from the 8th post and wear #7 in a 10 horse  field. 

9-20-09
Nile Tigress ran mid pack early in the race but managed to stay close to the rail while saving ground. At the top of the stretch she was 4th,  but she was able to kick it into gear late to finish a game 2nd, missing the win by only 3/4 of a length. We will check her condition and look to run again soon.

9-18-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #3 at Hoosier Park, which is scheduled to run on Sunday, September 20th. The race is a $5,000 claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track with a purse of $10,500. We have decided to go back to the familiar sprint distance, as she did not perform very well going a mile last time out. She will be breaking from the 2nd post in a 10 horse field. 

9-14-09
Anatolia, our first Louisiana-Bred racing prospect, arrived at Iron Horse Acres on Friday, September 11th.  Anatolia is a very impressive slowly graying 2008 yearling filly by PULLING PUNCHES, who is one of Louisiana's top sires.  We will monitor her development closely to determine if she has the ability to compete in 2010 as a 2 year-old or wait to start her as a 3 year-old in 2011.  

9-5-09
King Ty arrived safely at Iron Horse Acres today. He is a big impressive looking thoroughbred with a very athletic build, much like his sire FREUD. We will give him a day or two off due to his long trip from West Virginia, but he will soon begin intensive conditioning, as we are a little less than six weeks away from opening day at Delta Downs. He will be trained jointly by Byron Stevens and James I. Brown.

9-5-09
Nile Tigress again displayed her usual nervousness, as she was  fractious in the starting gate. She broke well but was checked slightly in the turn. She held 3rd place, only a few lengths behind the leader, as they turned for home. Unfortunately, she did not have anything left for the final run finishing 6th. We will check her condition and look to run her again soon.

8-28-09
We are excited to announce the addition of King Ty to our racing stable. He is an unraced 3 year-old New York-bred gelding. KT has a very strong pedigree, and we feel he can be very competitive on the Louisiana racing circuit. KT is sired by New York's leading sire FREUDand out of a Lord Carson mare. He is currently in transit from Mountaineer Park Race Track in Chester, WV. He is scheduled to arrive at Iron Horse Acres  (local farm and training facility) in Sunset, LA, on Saturday, Sept 5th. We should have him ready to race by opening day at Delta Downs in Vinton, LA. During today's "official" work out, he breezed a very good 3 furlongs in :36.40, which was a "Bullet" work out for the day.

8-16-09
Nile Tigress was forced to take a wide trip from the starting gate to the finish, going as much as 7-wide as she finished 7th. We will give Nile some rest before she returns to training and look to race again in a few weeks.

8-14-09
Nile Tigress will break from post #4 in a 10 horse field in another $5,000 claiming race for non-winners of two lifetime races. The race will be the 6th race at Hoosier Park on Sunday, August 16th. We will have Rodney Prescott riding for us once again, as we look to get back to the Winner's Circle!!

7-13-09

7-11-09
Nile Tigress continues to train well. Nile has been entered in Race #4 at Indiana Downs scheduled to run on Monday, July 13th.

Due to repairs on the main track, all races scheduled to run on the dirt surface today
have been canceled. We will have to see if the race will be rescheduled before the Spring Meet ends.

7-3-09

6-16-09
NILE TIGRESS WINS!!!! Through the falling rain and sloppy track at Indiana Downs, Nile Tigress starred down her rivals and drew away for the win in the stretch run. Our Trainer, Tianna Richardville, did a great job of preparing her for the race.


6-13-09

Nile Tigress will move to the training facilities at Indiana Downs, where she will now be trained by veteran Trainer Tianna Richardville. After Tianna has completed her evaluation of Nile, we will begin looking for her next race.

5-19-09
Nile Tigress was well positioned for the stretch run but lacked the late running effort needed to compete with the front runners. While this effort was not what we would have hoped for, we will be looking to shorten the distance of her next race, and most likely make a slight drop in class. We have to place her at a level at which she can compete.

5-15-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #1 at Indiana Downs scheduled to run on Tuesday, May 19th. The race is a $25,000 Maiden Claiming  race going one mile on the turf. She will be breaking from the 7th post in an 11 horse field.

5-5-09
Nile Tigress gave a very game effort early in the race, but did not have very much for the final run. She should improve from today's effort, as she appeared very accepting of the turf surface. We will check her condition over the next few days, and point to a race within the next two weeks.

5-1-09
We made the field for Race #2 at Indiana Downs, a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) race on May 5th. This is a pretty tough field. We will have to see if they keep it on the turf, as the weather has been pretty bad in the area.

4-30-09
We entered Nile Tigress today for a race on May 4th. Unfortunately, 20 horses entered for this race. We were not selected, however, the Racing Secretary is writing a race with the same conditions for May 5th.

She will break from post position #7 with jockey Kerwin Clark aboard in the one mile route race. She looks like a good addition to the stable.

5-21-16
Show Know Ragrets showed no run in her race today. She was soundly beaten by the entire field. While the race was taken off the turf and run over the dirt surface, a run on the turf would have unlikely changed the result. We will evaluate our options with the filly and decide accordingly. After two poor showings, she may be better suited for a different equine occupation.

12-27-14

12-14-14
Yonyoncomegetusome breezed three furlongs in :37 flat over a fast track this morning at Fair Grounds. His time was the 3rd fastest of the 22 horses who worked the distance. The blinkers off work may be the key to getting him back on track.

12-6-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 6th in his race tonight. He ran hard with the leaders early but had nothing left for the drive.

Hopefully, he can return to his competitive form and find a manageable field for his next start.

12-5-14

11-14-14
Yonyoncomegetusome finished 8th in his race tonight. The route distance did not appear to his liking. He broke well, but was never a threat.

Hopefully, he comes back good.

11-12-14
Smartlightandquit did not draw into the field from the also eligible list for his race tonight. He should be ready to go as other race options become available.

Yonyoncomegetusome is scheduled to make his next start in race #9 at Delta Downs on Friday, November 14th. The Louisiana-bred Allowance race will be run at a distance of one mile. The stretch out in distance should provide a slower and more favorable early pace. He will have jockey Jansen Melancon in the saddle once again when they break from post #6 in the ten horse field.

11-7-14
Smartlightandquit is 12/1 on the morning line for his race next week. If he is unable to draw into the final field from the also eligible list, he will possibly have an opportunity to run Saturday, November 15th, as a race with the same conditions is on the overnights and extras list.

11-5-14
Smartlightandquit has been entered to run in race #6 at Delta Downs on Wednesday, November 12th. The race is a one mile low level claiming race.

10-17-14
Smartlightandquit finished 5th in his race tonight. He broke sharply and looked well placed, but the runaway winner won in dominating fashion. The Delta Downs bull ring can be a little tricky the first time out. Hopefully, he and jockey Carlos Nieto will gain from the experience.

10-16-14
Yonyoncomegetusome will make his Fall/Winter debut at Delta Downs in race #7 on Thursday, October 23rd. The Louisiana-bred Allowance race will be run at a distance of five furlongs.

4-18-14
My Kool Pal Colin is scheduled to run in training race #1 at the Evangeline Training Center tomorrow morning.  He will break from post position #6 in the seven horse field of unraced horses. The race represents a good test for our three year-old gelding.
  
4-16-14
Foxford Hills Racing claimed City Thymes out of the fourth race tonight at Evangeline Downs. The lightly raced six year-old mare has 12 career starts with three career wins. She finished 5th in her five and one-half furlong sprint tonight, losing by a little over four lengths to the winner, but she should do much better with some added distance.  

4-5-14
My Kool Pal Colin breezed four furlongs in :51.80 over a fast track in company at Evangeline Downs this morning. It was a good work after having a few weeks away from the track. We will see how he comes back and plan his next work accordingly. 
 
3-31-14

3-1-14

5-16-13

5-8-13
Shreveport Royale finished a fast closing 4th in his race tonight. Trainer Darren Jones had him dialed in for his first race since being gelded. He was patient in the gate and broke well. Jockey Carlos Marquez took him back early and sat 10-plus lengths behind the leaders in the early going. He made a nice move on the final turn and closed with a flurry late. We will check his condition over the next few days and look to run him accordingly.
 
5-5-13

4-26-13
Tough Czar faced a very speedy field in his debut. He finished 11th and quickly showed that he is not a sprinter. We will look to drop him in class and stretch him out to a route distance next time out in our effort to find his competitive level.

4-20-13

4-2-13

3-29-13
Shreveport Royale finished 8th in his race yesterday. He broke through the starting gate before it was set to open, but once he was reset and the race began, Colby put him in a good stalking second place position where he sat in the early to mid stages of the race. Unfortunately, he had little left for the drive home. We will make some adjustments including gelding him in our effort to maximize his racing ability.
 
3-24-13
Shreveport Royale will make his next start on Thursday, March 28th in the 10th race at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, La.

3-20-13
Shreveport Royale finished 8th today in his first race of the year. He broke well, but could not keep pace with this classy field of open bred three year-olds. We will get him ready for Evangeline Downs and look to run him with state-breds in addition to a class drop in his next out. 
   
3-18-13
Shreveport Royale is listed at morning line odds of 20/1 for his race on Wednesday, March 20th. He completed his final tune-up on Saturday at the Evangeline Training Center and should be full of run on raceday.

3-11-13
Shreveport Royale was entered yesterday in a race to be run at Fair Grounds. Unfortunately, the race did not have enough entries to make the raceday card.

3-9-13
Shreveport Royale breezed five furlongs in an easy 1:06.15 over a fast but deep track at the Evangeline Training Center. The work was a good tune-up in preparation for his first start of 2013.

3-2-13

9-5-12

The Maiden Special Weight race is a six furlong sprint to be run over the main track. The race will cap off a stakes filled day of races to be run onSuper Derby Day at Louisiana Downs.  We will have veteran jockey Jose Riquelme in the saddle when they break from post position #4 in the 12 horse field. It is a good field of well bred two year-olds and will serve as a good test for our promising young colt.

9-2-12
Shreveport Royale breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :49.8 yesterday at Evangeline Downs over a fast track. His four furlong breeze ranked 11th fastest of the 25horses who worked the distance. The work was done without company and served as a good tune-up for our targeted Maiden Special Weight race next week. Unfortunately, he did not draw into the race but will continue to train as we explore our options for his next race.

8-25-12
Shreveport Royale  breezed three furlongs in :35.6 this morning over a track rated "good" at Evangeline Downs. Today's work was easily the best of his career. It was also the fastest breeze of the 11 horses who worked the three furlong distance earning him the "Bullet" three furlong work of the day. If he comes back good from today's work, we will look to enter him next weekend for a race scheduled to run Saturday, September 8th. He continues to flash the talent we saw in him earlier this year. If he remains healthy, he will have a great opportunity to run to his pedigree.

8-19-12
Shreveport Royale completed another good week of training. He is scheduled to have his first official breeze since his layoff next weekend. The plan is to work him three furlongs at Evangeline Downs.
 
8-6-12
Shreveport Royale has completed several good gallops over the training track. If  all goes as planned, he should have his next official breeze in a couple of weeks. He is working well, and the time off in June and July will have him fresh for his next start. 
 
7-27-12
Shreveport Royale is slowly moving back into training full-time after a little down time for our rapidly developing young colt. He began jogging this week, but should progress to galloping regularly fairly soon. The early plan is to race him once more before the summer racing season ends.
 
6-1-12
Shreveport Royale finished a solid 6th in his first race just 9 lengths from the winner. He broke sharp and alert from the starting gate but was taken back a bit. His trip was a little wider than we would have liked, but he ran very well down the stretch. He should progress well from this race experience.

5-27-12
Shreveport Royale has been intalled at morning line odds of  20/1 for his Maiden Special Weight (MSW) sprint. Our trainer Darren Jones and jockey Brandon Menard have brought the promising young colt along nicely, and he is more than ready for his first race.  
 
5-25-12
Shreveport Royale will make his first start on Friday, June 1st in race #3 at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) four and one half furlong sprint for two year olds. He will break from post position #9 in the ten horse field with apprentice jockey Brandon Menard aboard. The race will be a good first test for our promising young colt. He has made good progress in his training and fits well in this field of maidens.

5-24-12
Shreveport Royale breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :51 flat at Evangeline Downs. His time was 11th fastest of the 25 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. Our promising young colt is the lone horse remaining in our stable. We will stick with him and see where he takes us.

5-24-12
Satoshi's Daemon broke a little better from the gate today, and jockey Brandon Menard tried to get her involved early. Unfortunately, she appeared to want nothing to do with racing. We have made the decision to discontinue her racing career with our stable. We wish her new connections good luck in their pursuits with the three year old filly.

5-24-12
Anatolia broke good from the gate and was well placed throughout the early portion of the race. The race provided some very slow easy fractions, which appeared to set up pretty well for her usual closing run. Unfortunately, she did not respond when asked to run. After the race, she was moved to a farm where she will begin a new career as a trail horse. She was one of our more successful horses, and we wish her well in her new home.

5-17-12
Satoshi's Daemon will make her second career start in the 3rd race at Evangeline Downs on Thursday, May 24th. The maiden claiming race is set for a distance of six and one-half furlongs. She will have up and coming apprentice jockey Brandon Menard in the saddle when they break from post position #4 in the 13 horse field. We are looking for a better effort this time out from our young three year-old filly.  

5-17-12
Anatolia will make her next start in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs on Thursday, May24th. The race is a claiming race for non-winners of three lifetime races and will be run at a distance of one mile and seventy yards. We will have her regular jockey Carlos Marquez back in the saddle for the route race, as the two look to score their third win together when they break from post position #5 in the eight horse field.

5-13-12
Shreveport Royale worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.26 over a deep fast track at the Evangeline Training Center. He broke good from the gate with one other horse and easily outpaced his rival to the wire. He also had a great schooling session in the paddock on raceday Friday, May 11th (see YouTube). He took in the atmosphere very well and looked eager to join the competition. If he continues his steady progress in his training, we are pointing him to a race in early June. 

5-13-12
Satoshi's Daemon had a good work at the Folsom Training Center and looks to be ready to make another start. We entered her in a seven furlong race, but we were unlucky on the final draw as she did not make the 14 horse field. She will continue to train as we look for another good spot for her second career run.

5-12-12
Anatolia finished a disappointing 8th last night. After direct instructions to the jockey in the paddock to come off the pace, our jockey chose to go for the lead out of the gate.Anatolia is a classic closer, and barring a mid-career change in style, she will always do her best running late. We missed a great opportunity in this very manageable race, but we will look to put her in more capable hands in her next run.
 
5-5-12
Anatolia is scheduled to make her next start in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, May 11th. The one mile race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of three lifetime races. She will break from post position #6 in the eight horse field. We are turning to jockey David "Chip" Bourque for the Friday race. Chip has been consistently ranked in the top-10 jockey standings at Evangeline Downs over the last few years. The race provides an excellent opportunity for our hard charging filly to pick-up her third career win.
  
5-4-12
Shreveport Royale breezed in company with older horses this morning at Evangeline Downs, and he more than held his own. He worked three furlongs over a fast track in :37.4 in just his second official breeze. His time was the 11th fastest of the 27 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. Our promising young colt is making good progress and gives every indication that he will do well in his juvenile campaign.

5-4-12
Satoshi's Daemon caught a muddy track for her debut on Wednesday. She broke a little slow, but was able to gather herself and make a run along the rail. As the race progressed, it was easy to see that today was not going to be her day. She steadied on the final turn and retreated down the stretch. We will make a few adjustments and hope for a better racing surface in her next out. We are looking to run her back pretty quickly.

4-28-12
Satoshi's Daemon is listed at odds of 30-1 for her career debut on Wednesday, May 2nd. On paper, the race appears to be pretty wide open and provides her with an opportunity to get her career off to a strong start.

4-28-12
Anatolia closed well to finish 4th last night. She broke alert from the gate and settled very well near the tail end of the compact field. The leader and eventual winner was able to get an uncontested lead and some nice fractions throughout the one mile run. The pace scenario did not set-up quite as we had hoped, as we would have liked to see them go a little faster early, which would have been more favorable for the closers like Anatolia. As they turned for the finish line, she was last but kicked it in late losing by a little more than five lengths to the winner and losing by a head in a photo finish for 3rd place. We are more than happy with her first run after the layoff, and any duplication of last night's effort should land her in the winner's circle soon. We will see how she comes out of the race and plan accordingly. 

4-26-12
Satoshi's Daemon will make her racing career debut on Wednesday, May 2nd at Evangeline Downs in Race #5. The six furlong sprint is a Louisiana-bred Special Maiden Claiming race to be run over the main track. The race is made up of first-time starters and some lightly raced foes. She will break from post position #3 in the full field of14 horses with veteran jockey Carlos Marquez aboard. She has been training well, and if she runs to her pedigree she should be competitive in this field.

4-25-12
Anatolia is listed at morning line odds of 15-1 for her race on Friday. The morning line luke-warm favorite is listed at odds of 3-1. If the pace scenario sets up for her, she should be closing late.
  
4-21-12
Anatolia breezed five furlongs in company in 1:02.60 over a fast track at Evangeline Downs this morning. Her time was 10th fastest of the 26 horses who worked the five furlong distance. After the work, we entered her in a Louisiana-bred Claiming race going one mile at Evangeline Downs. The route race will be race #9 on the racecard and will be run on Friday, April 27th. She has been training very well for her return to competition. We will be looking for another big effort, when she breaks from post position #3 in the 10 horse field with jockey Carlos Marquez aboard.

4-21-12
Satoshi's Daemon worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.60 over a fast track at Evangeline Downs with apprentice jockey Denny Velazquez in the saddle. She received her gate card after the work and is now ready for race entry. We will look to enter her next week to run at Evangeline Downs.

4-21-12
Shreveport Royale received his identification tattoo today. He also completed his first official breeze this morning on a fast track at Evangeline Downs. He was clocked in a time of:27.80 for the two furlong work. Unfortunately, the exercise rider did not start working him until he was well past the two furlong starting mark, therefore the time is not reflective of how well he worked. We clocked him in :12 and change for the final furlong. It was a very good work for his first breeze.  A short video of him finishing up today's work can be found on our YouTube channel.

4-7-12
Anatolia breezed four furlongs this morning in :50.80 without company over a fast track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was 38th fastest of the 71 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. She got off to a bit of a slow start, but true to her form she finished very strong. This was her first official work after a well deserved Spring Break. She is making good progress in preparation for the start of the Evangeline Downs meet which begins on April 18th.

4-7-12
The Jockey Club has approved the name Shreveport Royale for our promising new two year-old colt. He galloped a little over a mile today at Evangeline Downs in company. Towards the end of the work the exercise rider let him run down the stretch. He flashed a good turn of foot and finished the work willingly as he easily outpaced his rival. We will keep him healthy and continue to monitor his steady progress.

3-31-12
Satoshi's Daemon  breezed three furlongs this morning in :38.20 over a track rated goodat Fair Grounds Race Course. Her time earned her the bulletwork of the day for three furlongs, as she covered the distance the fastest of the eight horses who worked today. She worked very good without company and should continue to improve after today's work.

3-25-12
When the auctioneer's hammer fell after the final bid on Hip #29 at the 2012 John Franks Memorial Two Year-Old in Training Sale, Evans Thoroughbred Racing secured its first prospect from a sales auction. The two year-old colt is by graded stakes winner and multiple stakes winner Gigawatt. Our new prospect has a nice athletic build and comes from a strong male line of stakes winners on both the sire and dam side of his pedigree. Be sure to visit our YouTube page for a few short videos of our promising young colt.

3-25-12
Satoshi's Daemon spent the morning schooling in the starting gate. She will look to work from the gate next weekend at Fair Grounds Race Course.

3-25-12
Green Card James has been sold. We wish the new connections good luck with the big California-bred gelding.

3-18-12
Satoshi's Daemon completed her first official breeze this morning when she worked three furlongs in :40.6 over a fast track at Fair Grounds Race Course. After getting off to a slow start over the first furlong, she picked up the pace and passed one horse in the turn and another two down the stretch beating them to the line by a little more than a length. She galloped out strong and finished up the morning work in good fashion. We will look to breeze her again next weekend with another horse for the entire work.
 
3-10-12
Satoshi's Daemon completed a sharp work this morning. She received her identification tattoo today and will look to earn her gate card soon. She is progressing well and gaining confidence with each work.

Satoshi's Daemon had a strong gallop this morning over the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. She looked very comfortable on the big track and continues to show the promise we saw in her late last year.

3-2-12
Anatolia finished 10th in her final race of the Delta Downs meet. She broke well and could have challenged for the lead early, but was taken slightly back. She was second, just one length behind the leader at the half. As they turned for the finish, she could not keep pace and was well beaten. She will get some well deserved downtime and look to come back fresh for the Evangeline Downs meet which begins in April.

2-26-12
Satoshi's Daemon had a good gallop this morning at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. Our now three year-old Louisiana-bred filly continues to develop, and we look forward to the start of her racing career. 
 
2-25-12
Anatolia is the 5/1 morning line fourth choice for her race on Thursday.  She had a nice work this morning for trainer Darren Jones and looks to be ready to go. If she gets a favorable trip, she looks poised to string together two consecutive good races.
   
2-24-12
Anatolia will make her next start in race #6 at Delta Downs on Thursday, March 1st. The one mile race is for non-winners of three lifetime races. She will break from post position #2in the ten horse field. Carlos Marquez will be in the saddle for the race and will look to continue the success the two have built together. In his four mounts, he has won two races aboard our hard charging filly. We are looking for another strong effort on Thursday night.

2-21-12
We will look to the John Franks Memorial Two Year Old in Training Sale to acquire our next horse. Each horse who passes through the sales ring will be eligible to run in the John Franks Memorial Sales Stakes in September, which has a guaranteed purse of$60,000 for both the fillies and the colts and geldings divisions. We are in the process of putting together a budget as we go through a careful examination of each horse's pedigree and prepare our list of horses we plan to examine more closely during the days prior to the sale. The sale will be held on Sunday, March 25th at Evangeline Downs.

2-15-12
Anatolia came out of her winning run in good condition. She put in a huge effort and looks to be ready to tackle non-winners of three races in her next start.

2-11-12
Anatolia Runs All Out for Victory!! Over a muddy racing surface at Delta Downs,  Anatolia picked up her second career win. She broke sharp and alert from the gate and was well placed around the first turn, as she sat just four lengths from the leader after the quarter pole. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, put her in more of a stalking position as opposed to her normal far off the pace running style. The decision would prove to be a wise one, as she continued to gain on the leader at the half way mark. At the three-quarters pole, her momentum moved her into first place with a clear two length lead, but she would have work to do before this night was over. As they turned for home, she maintained the lead, but the cavalry charge was set to challenge her for the lead. The track announcer declared, "This one's wide open!" Marquez engaged her attention late, as she put her head down, refocused and ran all out for the win! He gave us a very confident ride in very difficult racing conditions on a night were the early speed was holding. Trainer Darren Jones and his team did a great job of getting her more than ready to run last night. She was alert, on her toes, and showed that she is a maturing race horse who has learned what she needs to do to be a winner. We will check her condition over the next few days and plan accordingly.

2-8-12
Green Card James ran a disappointing 8th in his first run over the Delta Downs surface tonight. He broke well but was never involved. The run was a bit of a head scratcher, but we will look to make some adjustments before giving him another opportunity.

2-8-12
Anatolia has been installed as the 7/2 morning line second choice by the oddsmakers for her Friday race. If she gets a good trip, she looks to have a solid opportunity to pick-up her second career win.

2-3-12
Anatolia will make her next start in the 9th race at Delta Downs on Friday, February 10th. The one mile race is for non-winners of two lifetime races. She will break from post position#10 in the ten horse field. The race will mark the return of Carlos Marquez to the saddle. We are looking for them to team up for a big Friday run.
 
2-1-12
Green Card James will make his first start for Evans Thoroughbred Racing in the 8th race at Delta Downs on Wednesday, February 8th. The race is a claiming race at a distance of one mile. He will break from post position #6 in the ten horse field with jockey Carlos Marquez in the saddle. The veteran horse is training well for trainer Darren Jones and looks to be well placed for his first start at Delta Downs.

2-1-12
Green Card James and Anatolia were unable to draw into the final fields for their races on tomorrow. Green Card James will be re-entered today for a race next Wednesday andAnatolia will be re-entered Friday for a race the following Friday. Hopefully, we will have better luck at the entry box next time out.
  
1-26-12
Anatolia is on the Also-Eligible list for race #9 at Delta Downs on February 2nd. The race will cover one mile over the main track.  We will need one horse from the main body of the field to scratch at final entry in order for her to make the race. The race appears to be a good spot for her, but we will have to wait and see if we are able to draw into the final field. 
  
1-26-12
Green Card James is on the Also-Eligible list for race #6 at Delta Downs on February 2nd.The one mile race will be run over the main track. In order for him to draw into the race, we will need two horses from the main body of the field to scratch at final entry. The race looks like an excellent spot for his debut with us, but we will have to wait and see if we are able to draw into the Thursday race. 
 
1-21-12
We have added 2006 California-bred gelding Green Card James to our stable. He comes to us with three career wins in 23 starts and over $72,000 in career earnings. His most recent win came in a route race at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans in December. We look forward to watching him compete at Delta Downs and this Spring at Evangeline Downs.

1-18-12
Satoshi's Daemon is showing good improvement on the farm for the training group in Poplarville. As she continues to develop both physically and mentally, we will monitor her progress and look forward to her first official work and an exciting three year-old racing campaign.
  
1-15-12
Anatolia finished 5th in her extended seven furlong sprint race on yesterday. She broke well and stayed three to five lengths from the leader for most of the race. In the final stretch, she ran well finishing a little over 6 lengths behind the winner. We will look to return her back to her usual route race in her next start.
 
1-7-12
Anatolia breezed four furlong in :51.13 over a fast track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. She will make her next start on Saturday, January 14th  in race #9 at Delta Downs. The seven furlong claiming race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of two lifetime races. We will have jockey Junior Inirio in the saddle once again when they break from post position #9 in the 10 horse field. She continues to improve and looks to be well placed for the Saturday run.

12-31-11
Grand Princess has been retired from racing. She will move on to a career as a broodmare.

12-17-11
Anatolia finished an impressive 2nd in a good field of Louisiana-bred fillies and mares tonight. Trainer Darren Jones and his team had her primed and ready to put in a big effort, and she did not disappoint. She broke sharply from the gate, and jockey Junior Inirio guided her immediately to the rail and settled in nicely. At the half way mark, they sat patiently in fifth place about eight lengths from the dueling leaders. After completing three-quarters of a mile, Junior asked her to make a move, and she responded accordingly. She began picking off rivals and moved into second place at the top of the stretch. She ran on gamely, easily maintaining her second place position by six-plus lengths over the third place finisher. She put in a huge effort, but could not reach the 5 year-old winning mare who won handily. It was a good bounce back race and a definite confidence builder. We will check her condition over the next few days and determine if she will get one more race in during her 3year-old campaign or look to run her next year as a 4 year-old. 

12-10-11
Anatolia completed a good four furlong breeze in :53.68 this morning at the Evangeline Training Center over a fast track. She will make her next start on Saturday, December 17th  in race #2 at Delta Downs. The one mile claiming race is for Louisiana-bred non-winners of two lifetime races. We will have jockey Junior Inirio in the saddle when they break from post position #2 in the eight horse field. She continues to train well and should be competitivewith this field.

12-9-11
Satoshi's Daemon arrived safely at the farm in Poplarville, Mississippi. After her inital evaluation and a little maintenance work, the training team will quickly move her into race training and begin building her confidence on the race track.

12-8-11
Satoshi's Daemon will be moved to the farm in Poplarville, Mississippi. She should arrive some time Friday morning where she will continue her training. She continues to progress very well physically, but her mental development is still a work-in-progress. The promising filly has a wealth of talent and has a very bright future ahead.
 
11-24-11
Anatolia finished 10th in her race last night. She was a well placed 6th at the half way mark just three lengths from the leader, but she did not respond when asked to run late. After the race we had her examined, and we may have determined the reason for the poor performance. We will continue to evaluate her and decide on the best course of action.

11-19-11
Satoshi's Daemon galloped very good in company at the Evangeline Training Center today. Her physical development is ahead of her racing knowledge, but we will continue to drill her on those things she will need to master before she is ready to go racing. 
 
11-19-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :53.18 at the Evangeline Training Center over the fast main track. This was her second work since coming back from a little layoff. We will check her condition and look to get a few more works in her before looking to race in December. 
 
11-18-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Wednesday, November 23rd at Delta Downs in race #9. The Louisiana-bred one mile claiming race will be run over the main track. We will have Carlos Marquez in the saddle again when they break from post position #4 in the ten horse field. We are looking for another strong effort after the class drop. 

11-6-11
Grand Princess has been given some additional down time. We will look to work her officially again in a few weeks before looking to race.
 
11-5-11
Anatolia ran 6th last night in her one mile claiming race. She caught a strong field of  out-of-state runners. The winner was a 5 year-old Kentucky-bred, who was easily the class of the field. Our jockey took Anatolia well off the pace early and tried to make one big run at the end. They passed a few, but with the bull ring that is Delta Downs, the finish line comes quickly. She established a new career best Equibase Speed figure for the third consecutive race, as she showed no problem running back after only nine days of rest. We will give her a little more down time and look to place her in the best position to be successful in her next race.

11-1-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Friday, November 4th at Delta Downs in race #9. The one mile race will be run over the main track and will mark the return of Carlos Marquez to the saddle when they break from post position #1 in the field of eight horses. We are hopeful that she has an uneventful trip, as she fits well with this field of fillies and mares.

10-31-11
Satoshi's Daemon is training well and continues her development as a racehorse. Provided she continues her development and makes continued progress, she will have her first official work on November 19th or November 26th.  She is progressing well after her first full month on the training farm.

10-26-11
Anatolia finished 7th tonight against a strong field of Louisiana-bred fillies. Unfortunately, our scheduled jockey was unable to ride, however Junior Inirio stepped in for the mount. They broke alertly and were a well placed 5th along the rail through the first half of the race. As they approached the final turn, they began to make a forward move. At the top of the stretch, they encountered a wall of horses. Inirio decided to swing her wide and make a run. Unfortunately, she lost a little momentum and flattened out in the final drive. Her run was more than respectable in this Allowance and Stakes caliber field. We will check her condition and look to run her back again on a slight class drop.

10-22-11
Grand Princess breezed three furlongs in :38.43 at the Evangeline Training Center  over the fast main track. The breeze was her first official work since returning to training. We will check her condition and plan her training accordingly.

10-20-11
Anatolia will make her Delta Downs debut in race #4 on October 26th in a Louisiana-bred Allowance race traveling one mile over the main track. We will have nationally ranked jockey Orlando Mojica in the saddle when they break from post position #1 in the 10 horse field. The race will represent the biggest challenge of her racing career to-date, but she is well rested, training well and is more than ready to meet the challenge.

10-12-11
Anatolia breezed five furlongs over the fast track in 1:06 at the Evangeline Training Center in preparation for race entry at Delta Downs this week.
  
10-8-11
Our racing stable is progressing nicely as we move into the 2011 Fall racing season. Trainer Darren Jones has Anatolia primed and ready to make race entry during the opening week of the Delta Downs Meet. Our newest addition,  Satoshi's Daemon, is continuing her breaking and conditioning training as she is slowly learning what it will take to become a successful racehorse. Grand Princess is enjoying a little downtime, but will move back into training in a few weeks and will be ready to show her signature early speed in her next start. We are looking forward to an exciting racing season.

9-26-11
We are excited about the addition of Satoshi's Daemon to our racing stable. She is a 2009Louisiana-bred filly by Southern States who is the son of stakes-placed winner Southern Halo who was the leading sire in Argentina 7 times while siring 170 stakes winners and 19champions. The dam of our new prospect is Honalua Honey who broke her maiden on the turf with Maiden Special Weight company. She has produced four other foals of racing age with all becoming winners. Our new addition is a versatile prospect with a bright racing future.

9-23-11
Anatolia came out of her winning effort in great shape and ready to run again. We tried to make race entry on several occasions before the close of the Louisiana Downs meet, but unfortunatly none of our race selections made the race day card. She will continue to train in preparation for the Delta Downs meet which begins in mid-October.

9-9-11
Anatolia Wins!!!! In her sixth career start, Anatolia broke her maiden winning the one mile and seventy yards route race in impressive fashion. She broke sharply from the gate but was unhurried early. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, allowed her to relax and settle during the early part of the race. After the half way mark, she began to pick up the pace and make her move, picking off horses one by one. At the top of the stretch, she took a slight lead, and at that point it was clear that it was going to be a two horse race for the win. With each stride,Anatolia appeared to gain more confidence, as her lone rival resigned that she would be second best tonight. Anatolia crossed the finish line 1 3/4 lengths ahead of the second place finisher and 11 1/2 lengths ahead of the third place finisher. We will check her condition over the next few days to make certain she is in good health after the huge effort and then determine if we will try for a race at Louisiana Downs.   

9-2-11
Anatolia will make her next start in the 11th race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, September 9th. The race is a one mile and seventy yards route race to be run over the main track. Veteran jockey Carlos Marquez will be aboard when they break from post position #9in the 11 horse field. She gave a big effort in her last race. The added distance and slower pace should allow her to be closer to the lead early and position her for a strong late run.

9-1-11
Grand Princess was scratched by the track veterinarian less than one minute before the race was set to start. With odds of 7/2 and sitting as the second choice by the betting public, GP was set to put in a big effort. Unfortunately, she was not going to get her chance this night. The ultimate winner of the race has the same running style as GP. She went straight to the front and did not look back. It was difficult to watch the race, because GP had beaten the winner by 2 lengths when they faced each other on May 20th.  We will review our options with the speedy filly and plan accordingly.

8-29-11
Our horses have been moved to Traders Rest Farm, a full service training facility in Carencro, Louisiana, where they will continue their training. Both horses are doing well and appear to be quickly adapting to the new environment.

8-26-11
Grand Princess has been installed as the morning line third choice at odds of 4-1 for her race on Thursday, September 1st. The return of John Jacinto to the saddle and a slight drop in class gives her a great opportunity to break her maiden in the five furlong sprint.

8-26-11
Anatolia broke well from the starting gate tonight. She was well placed along the rail, as she let the speed horses duel on the front end. As they turned for home, she maintained her rail position and began to make a late move. She managed to weave her way through traffic to finish a solid 4th, a little over 6 lengths behind the winner and just 1/2 length behind the third place finisher. We will try to stretch her out just a little more in her next race in order to take advantage of her strong late kick.

8-25-11
Grand Princess is entered to run on Thursday, September 1st in race #8. The race will be a five furlong sprint run over the main track. Veteran jockey John Jacinto will return for his second mount aboard GP when they break from post position #6 in the 12 horse field. An early review of the race appears to place GP in a favorable position in this field of maidens.

8-20-11
Anatolia will make her next start in the 10th race on Friday, August 26th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a five and one-half furlong sprint to be run over the main track. We will have apprentice jockey Thomas Porche, III in the saddle when they break from post position#1 in the 12 horse field. We are expecting a big effort after some extended time off.
 
8-18-11
Grand Princess  was not able to get the early lead as she did in some of her previous races. She broke a little slow, but was well ridden early as she was able to settle along the rail. Our jockey, Carlos Marquez, had her placed 4th as they turned for the finish, but the winner was much the class of the race. The winner won by 9 lengths over the second place finisher, with Grand Princess finishing 5th beaten by 11 lengths. We will check her condition over the next few days and see if one final run for the 2011 Evangeline Downs meet is possible. 

8-13-11
Grand Princess came out of her last race in good condition. She will make her next start on Thursday, August 18th in the 1st race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Claiming sprint traveling five furlongs over the main track. She will have capable jockey Carlos Marquez in the saddle when they break from post position #6 in the eight horse field. She is listed at morning line odds of 12-1. With her early speed running style, the shorter distance will give her a better opportunity of reaching the line first. 
 
8-11-11
Grand Princess broke from the starting gate alertly and flashed her usual early speed. She went straight to the front and was able to take a full two length lead after four furlongs. At the top of the stretch, the cavalry charge began. She fought on gamely at the end finishing3rd against a good field of maidens. We will check her condition and look to get one more run in before the meet ends.

8-5-11
Grand Princess will make her next start on Thursday, August 11th in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Claiming race going six furlongs over the main track. We have secured the services of one of the track's top jockeys in John Jacinto. They will break from post position #2 in the 13 horse field. She continues to train well and looks well placed in this field of maiden claimers. 

8-5-11
Anatolia was scratched from her race today. She had a small accident in her stall earlier this week, and we chose not to run her until she has fully recovered. If all goes as planned, we will look to enter her in another race next week.

7-30-11
Anatolia will return to racing on Friday, August 5th in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Louisiana Bred Maiden Claiming race going one mile over the main track. We will have jockey Roberto Villafan in the irons when they break from post position #7 in the10 horse field.  

7-30-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :51.94 on a fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center. We are looking to make race entry sometime next week.

7-25-11
Tensas Gray Girl has been sold. Unfortunately, the former stakes winner did not get an opportunity to run for us. We wish her well in her new career.

7-23-11
Anatolia breezed three furlongs from the starting gate in :37.4 over a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was fourth fastest of the 18 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. After some time off for rest and further physical development, she appears poised to resume her racing career. We are pointing her to a race scheduled for the first week of August.

7-20-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed four furlongs in :52 on a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was fifth fastest of the 11 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. Unfortunately, the representatives for the State Veterinarian chose not to approve her for racing. We will monitor her condition and evaluate our options on her future as a race horse. 
 
7-13-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :49.4 on a fast main track at Evangeline Downs. Her time was second fastest of the seven horses who breezed the four furlong distance.

7-2-11

Her time was 18th fastest of the 42 horses who breezed the four furlong distance.

6-22-11
Grand Princess finished a disappointing 10th in her five furlong sprint. The race was moved from the turf to the sloppy main track due to inclement weather. She did not take well to the off-track. We will look to race again soon under better weather conditions.  

6-18-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed five furlongs in 1:06.8 this morning at Evangeline Downs. The breeze was without company on the deep main track during the closing minutes of the final training session. The final nominations for the Louisiana Showcase Distaff closed with16 nominations. The field will be limited to 12 starters, with preference given to horses with the highest lifetime earnings. TGG ranks seventh in career earnings, which means barring injury we will enter the holiday weekend stakes race. Trainer Shelton LeBlanc has mapped out a training schedule which should have her peaking at race time. 

6-16-11
Grand Princess will make her next start on Wednesday, June 22nd in the 2nd race at Evangeline Downs. The race is a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) race going five furlongs over the turf course. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque riding for us again, and they will break from post position #8 in the ten horse field. She has been training well, and will look to break her maiden in her tenth career start.

6-15-11
Tensas Gray Girl has been nominated to the Louisiana Showcase Distaff. The$100,000 stakes race is for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares four years-old and upward, going one mile and seventy yards over the main track. She is a past stakes winner over the Evangeline Downs track, so stakes competition is not new to her. She continues to train well, and her stretch running style should fit well at this distance.

6-15-11
Grand Princess has been nominated to the Louisiana Showcase Ladies Sprint. The$100,000 stakes race is for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares three years-old and upward, going five and one-half furlongs on the main track. We will enter her in a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) five furlong sprint tomorrow, and if that race goes, we will not enter her in the stakes race. She will have other opportunities in the future, but for now we want to concentrate on breaking her maiden.
 
6-11-11
Tensas Gray Girl breezed five furlongs in 1:04.39 over the fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. She is every bit the horse we thought she was when we decided to claim her. She continues to train well in anticipation of her first start with Evans Thoroughbred Racing.

6-11-11
Grand Princess breezed four furlongs in :52.18 over a fast main track at the Evangeline Training Center this morning. The four furlong breeze was a good maintenance work for her, until we identify another good spot for her next race.

6-9-11
Due to an administrative error, we have been notified by the racing stewards that Grand Princess will be scratched from her race on Saturday. It is unfortunate, because she was listed as the 5-1 morning line third choice and was picked to win by Brisnet Handicapping Service. We will shore up our administrative deficiencies, and look to find another good spot for GP very soon.

6-8-11
Grand Princess will make her next start in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs on Saturday, June 11th. The race in a $15,000 Maiden Claiming sprint going five and one-half furlongs over the main track. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle once again when they break from post position #9 in the nine horse field. Chip gave us a great ride in his last race aboard GP, when they just missed the win by 1/2 length. If she can duplicate the effort she gave in her last race, she has a great opportunity for the win.

5-27-11
Evans Thoroughbred Racing claimed Tensas Gray Girl in the 4th race at Evangeline Downs today from the successful barn of trainer Carl J. Woodley and Pegasus Stable. The big gray Louisiana-bred six-year old mare won the six furlong sprint with a strong late kick with little urging. She is by Ide who is one of the top Louisiana sires and out of the Cozzenemare Cool Kiss. She is a versitile, experienced stakes winner of over $130,000 and is able to sprint or run a route of ground. We are extremely blessed to have her as a part our stable. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to place her in a good spot for her first race with our stable. She will be trained by Shelton LeBlanc.

5-25-11
Anatolia broke quickly from the gate and was a well placed third after the first turn. She sat third throughout the backstretch, stalking the leaders to the top of the stretch. As the field turned for the finish, she looked primed to make a good final run. Unfortunately, she did not have anything left for the finish and crossed the line in 8th. We will check her condition over the next few days and evaluate our options on her future as a racehorse.

5-20-11
Grand Princess gave us the big effort we were looking for tonight in her six furlong sprint. She broke quickly from the gate and went straight to the lead, while setting a blistering pace. Our jockey, Chip Bourque, kept her to task as she out dueled rivals approaching the top of the stretch. She was able to take a clear lead in the stretch, and looked to capture the win as they turned for home. In mid stretch, she drifted out ever so slightly as the late runners approached. However, she finished in a very impressive dead heat for 2nd place, just missing the win by 1/2 length. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to put her in a similiar position for her next race.

5-19-11
Anatolia will make her next start at Evangeline Downs in the 10th race on Wednesday, May25th. The race is a Maiden Claiming race going one and one sixteenth miles. We will have veteran jockey Rex A. Stokes, III in the saddle for the route race. Rex is currently ranked in the top 5 in wins for the Evangeline Downs Meet. They will break from post position #9 in the nine horse field.

Grand Princess will make her next start in the 6th race at Evangeline Downs on Friday, May 20th. The race is a six furlong sprint on the main track. We will have jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle when she breaks from post position #12 in the full field of 14 horses. She has been training well. With the adjustments we have made since her last race, we are looking for a big effort this time out.

5-14-11
Anatolia finished 11th in her race today beaten by 14 lengths. She broke well, but was checked after the first quarter mile. Through the turn, she could not get to the rail and was forced to take a wide trip. While the pace of the race was absent of speed, she still had difficulty keeping pace. We will look to make an aggressive class drop in her next race and stretch her out to at least one mile. She has always shown more stamina than speed, so hopefully a combination of the class drop and additional distance will allow her to be more competitive in her next start. 
 
5-11-11
Anatolia is scheduled to make her 2011 Evangeline Downs debut in the 3rd race on Saturday, May 14th. The six furlong race is a Special Accredited Maiden Claiming race for Louisiana Bred three year-old fillies. Veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque will be in the saddle for the Saturday afternoon sprint. They are slated to break from post position #9 in the full field of 14 horses.

5-7-11
Anatolia worked a two-minute mile over a fast track today at the Folsom Training Center. The track clockers picked her up at :38.95 for the final three furlongs. The work was not for time, but we were more than pleased with her willing finish. If she comes back in good condition, we will enter her next week for a race scheduled to run Saturday, May 14th.

4-24-11
Grand Princess broke well from the gate in her race yesterday and was a well placed third in the early going. As the field made the turn for the finish, she lacked the final kick needed to keep pace with the leaders and finished 9th. She appears to have come out of the race in good condition and should be able to run back soon.

4-20-11
Grand Princess will make her 2011 Evangeline Downs debut in the 11th race on Saturday, April 23rd. The race is a $5,000 Maiden Claiming race for fillies and mares going five furlongs over the main track. She will have veteran jockey Josh Romero in the saddle when they break from post position #11 in the 12 horse field.

4-8-11
Grand Princess breezed an easy three furlongs in :37.2 today at Evangeline Downs, with jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the saddle. Her time was 6th fastest of the 14 horses who breezed the three furlong distance. If all goes as planned, we will look to enter her in a race scheduled to run in two weeks.

4-3-11
Anatolia galloped a little yesterday after taking a few weeks off to recover from a slight muscle pull in her shoulder. She was eager to get back to work, but we will gradually increase her workload over the next few weeks. If all goes well, she should be ready to race towards the end of the month.

3-19-11
Anatolia was scratched from her race today. She was still a little sore from her work last weekend, so we decided to give her a little more time. We will see if one more run is possible before the Fair Grounds Meet ends. If not, we will start preparing for the Evangeline Downs Meet which starts in April.
 
3-13-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Saturday, March 19th in the 11th race at Fair Grounds Race Course. The race is a Louisiana Special Maiden Claiming race for Louisiana-bred three year-old fillies. The five furlong sprint will be run over the main track. We will have veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque riding once again. They will break from post position #6 in the11 horse field. She has been training well and has matured as a race horse.  We are hopeful that she will be able to put it all together in her third career start.

3-13-11
Grand Princess had a rough go of it today. It started when we had to make an unexpected jockey change before the race. Once the race started after an hour long delay, her luck did not get any better. The #4 horse to her right stumbled out of the gate causing the jockey to fall off. The horse then veered into her path causing her to hesitate. She also encountered trouble on her left, when she was bumped by the #2 horse coming out of the gate. She trailed the field and moved up slightly, finishing 8th.  She will now start preparing for the Evangeline Downs Meet, which opens on April 6th.

3-12-11
Anatolia breezed four furlongs in company today over the fast main track at Fair Grounds. After trailing initially, she easily passed and outpaced her rivals covering the four furlong distance in :50 flat. We entered her in a race to be run on Friday, but unfortunately the race did not make the card. The race was placed on the Extras, so we will enter her again tomorrow for a race to be run on next Saturday.

3-10-11
Grand Princess will make her first start with Evans Thoroughbred Racing on March 13th in race #1 at Delta Downs. The race is a $20,000 Louisiana-bred Maiden Claiming sprint going five furlongs on the main track. We will have journeyman jockey Frederick Carmouche, Jr. in the irons for the race, and they will break from post position #3in the 10 horse field.
  
3-4-11
We have agreed to partner in the acquisition of 2007 Louisiana-bred filly Grand Princess. She is sired by Grand Appointment and out of Bag mare Miss Bagfire. She comes to us with six career starts and three second place finishes, which leaves all of her lifetime conditions intact. She ran against a good Maiden Special Weight field on March 2nd at Delta Downs, after a six month layoff. We will look to place her in a Maiden Claiming sprint with Louisiana-bred company in her next race.

2-27-11
Anatolia came out of her race in good shape. She enjoyed her day off yesterday with a little free time to run in field. She was back at work this morning in preparation for her final start of the Fair Grounds meet. We have identified a few good spots for her next run. If all goes well, we will get in some work with Chip in the saddle and look to race in a few weeks against Louisiana-bred company.

2-25-11
Anatolia broke well from the starting gate moving from 6th to 4th once the horses settled. Chip guided her on a nice rail path to the top of the stretch. Unfortunatly, she faced some pretty strong speed horses that stayed on well. She finished a tiring 6th, and did not show the late kick we saw in her last race. We will check her condition tomorrow, and if she comes back good we will look to get some morning works in her in a week or so with Chip in the saddle. We plan to get one more race in before the Fair Grounds meet ends, as we will look to return to the more accommodating confines of Louisiana-bred only company.

2-20-11
Anatolia will make her next start on Friday, February 25th in the 4th race at Fair Grounds Race Course.  The race is an open $12,500 Maiden Claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track. We will have veteran jockey David "Chip" Bourque in the irons for the race. They will break from post position #1 in the 9 horse field. The early Brisnet program has her listed as the fourth selection based on previous speed ratings. She has worked diligently at the starting gate since her last race and should be competitive if she breaks well.
 
2-14-11
Anatolia galloped an easy mile yesterday. If all goes as planned, she will breeze from the starting gate at Fair Grounds this weekend. If she comes out of the work with no problems, we will make race entry later during the week.
  
1-29-11
Anatolia came out of her race in good shape. She will begin working on improving her break from the starting gate as we look for a good spot for her next race. 

1-27-11
Anatolia broke very slowly from the starting gate today and spotted the field at least five lengths. After the bad break, Trey Agilar allowed her to settle and slowly make up ground on the field. At the top of the stretch, she was over 16 lengths from the leader. Trey did not push her hard at the end, but guided her well down the stretch to finish 10th just 10 lengths from the leader. We will give her a little break and then back to work at the starting gate. If she can overcome her gate problem, she is going to be a very competitive racehorse.
 
1-23-11
Anatolia is listed at morning line odds of 20-1 for her debut. We made a change in jockey deciding to go with Trey Agilar who is having a very productive Fair Grounds meet. The field is made up of first-time starters and a number of lightly raced maidens.  With a good break from the gate and a little racing luck, she should be competitive.
 
1-22-11
Anatolia will make her first career start on Thursday, January 27th  in the 10th race at Fair Grounds Race Course. The race is a Louisiana Special Maiden Claiming race for three year old Louisiana-bred fillies. The five furlong sprint will be run over the main track. We will have veteran journeyman jockey Monica K. Stanley in the saddle for us. They are slated to break from post #9 in the 12 horse field.

1-20-11
Anatolia worked four furlongs from the starting gate in :51.40 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track. After today's work, she received her gate card and she is now eligible for race entry. Her break from the gate is still an area which needs much improvement, but it will come in time with repetition. We will enter her this weekend for a Louisiana-bred Maiden Claiming race to be run next week.  
 
1-9-11
Anatolia worked at Fair Grounds again today. The published work-out will show a time of :39.60 for three furlongs from the starting gate. However, today's work was solely focused on breaking from the gate and getting gate approved. Unfortunately, she still hesitated when the gate opened and the rider worked her two furlongs and slowed to a gallop for the final furlong as we instructed.  Ana has shown the speed and desire to compete, but she will have to improve her gate work before she is ready to go racing.
  
1-8-11
Anatolia worked three furlongs from the starting gate in :36.6 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track. While the work-out was her best to-date, she will need to improve her break from the starting gate before she is ready to race.

1-2-11
Anatolia worked three furlongs in :37.8 today at Fair Grounds over the fast main track.  There are a few possible races in the latest condition book. We will see how she comes back after today's work and plan accordingly.

12-19-10
Anatolia worked four furlongs in :53.20 today at Fair Grounds. Today's work was really not for time. She worked behind another horse so that she could experience running with dirt kicked in her face. She did well and kept to task. We will see how she looks after today's work and determine if she is ready to enter this week. 

12-12-10
Anatolia completed her first official workout today at Fair Grounds. She breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :51.8 over the fast main track. After a little time off to recover from some soreness, she did well for her first official breeze. We will check her condition over the next few days and look to breeze her again in a week or so, as she prepares for a possible race at the end of the month.

On a sad note, our promising two-year old Wireline will not be able to continue training for a racing career due to problems with his knees. We hope to find him a new career.

11-20-10
Wireline breezed four furlongs from the starting gate in :52.76 today at the Evangeline Training Center. His time ranked 39th of the 49 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. We are pointing him towards a race at Fair Grounds in early December. He will breeze one more time before we make race entry.

11-20-10
Anatolia will take a few more days off, as she works through some soreness in her shins. We do not want to overwork her, as she appears to have a bright racing future. This will set her back a little, but she should be able to gallop at Fair Grounds next weekend. The Fair Grounds work will also help her to get familiar with the track surroundings. When she is healthy and ready to go, the plan is to point her towards Louisiana-Bred Maiden Special Weight (MSW) competition.
  
11-10-10
Wireline breezed three furlongs from the starting gate in :39 today over a fast track at Evangeline Downs. The work-out was done without company. This was also his first official work from the stating gate, so we are pleased that he broke cleanly and ran well. We will enter him in a training race at Evangeline Training Center. The race is scheduled for Wednesday, November 17th. This race should give us an idea of where he is in his racing development.

10-30-10
Wireline breezed three furlongs in :38.92 today at the Evangeline Training Center. His time ranked 35th of the 40 horses who breezed the three furlong distance.  This was the first official workout for our promising 2 year-old in over six months, so he should improve in the coming weeks as he continues to train for his racing debut.

10-9-10
We are excited about the addition of Wireline to our racing stable. Wireline is a 2 year old Louisiana-Bred gelding by Wire Me Collect. Wire Me Collect is a multiple stakes winner with over $600,000 in lifetime earnings. He has sired several stakes winners and has over $3 million in progeny earnings. We are pointing Wireline to Fair Grounds Race Course for his racing debut where he will be trained by Shelton LeBlanc. 

10-8-10
Blazing Thunder continues to experience sever soreness. We have made the decision to retire him from racing. We will try to find him a good home with a new career.

9-10-10
Blazing Thunder was scratched from his race by the track veterinarian during the post parade prior to being loaded into the starting gate. After some recent setbacks, we will look to rebound at the Delta Downs meet in late October or early November.

9-8-10
Anatolia received her first set of horseshoes today. We are hopeful that she will be able to begin some official breezing in the next few weeks. The early plan is to have her ready for opening day at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, which is scheduled to start in late November on Thanksgiving Day.

9-4-10
Blazing Thunder worked four furlongs in :52.34 at the Evangeline Training Center today. This was his first official work-out on the slower training center surface. He lugged in towards the rail, which hurt his time, but he came out of the work in good condition. After the work-out, we entered him in a $20,000 Maiden Claiming race going 6 furlongs on the main track at Louisiana Downs in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. The race will be #5 on the Friday, September 10th program. We will have "hot" apprentice jockey Luis Negron riding for us, as we are slated to break from post #9 in the nine horse field.
 
8-28-10
Anatolia is slowly rounding into shape.  She is building her stamina on the 5/8th's track in Mississippi and also working on walking through the starting gate. She worked today at the Evangeline Training Center, and looked impressive for her first time on the "big" track. We will take it slowly with her, but we are hopeful that she will be able to compete as a two-year old later this year.

8-28-10
Blazing Thunder came up a little sore yesterday, so we decided to scratch him from tonight's race. After watching the race, it was unfortunate that we had to scratch him, as the fractions were very slow in a very weak field. We will look for similar conditions for his next race.

8-26-10
We have made a jockey change for our race on Saturday. Leading apprentice jockey Luis Negron will ride for us. Luis has a 34% in-the-money racing percentage this season including15 wins. As he is an apprentice, we will get a 5 lbs. weight allowance.

8-25-10
Blazing Thunder has been entered to run in race #5 on Saturday, August 28th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a $5,000 Louisiana-Bred Maiden Claiming race going 6 furlongs over the main track. The "early" program has him breaking from the 14th post position in a full field of 14 horses.  We will have journeyman jockey Nathaniel Puello riding for us, as we try to end the 2010 Evangeline Downs meet on a strong note.
 
8-12-10
Blazing Thunder breezed four furlongs from the starting gate over a fast track in an impressive :49.6 this morning at Evangeline Downs. His time was 2nd best of the13 horses who breezed the four furlong distance. He looks to be ready for his next racing opportunity.

7-21-10
Blazing Thunder was entered in a Louisiana-bred race scheduled to run Saturday, July24th, but he was not selected. We will give him a little more time off before looking at possible races for next month.

7-19-10
Blazing Thunder breezed three furlongs over the main track this morning at Evangeline Downs. He covered the three furlong distance in :38 flat. The work out was a very light breeze to check his condition for a possible next race. We will see how he looks over the next day or so. If he is ready, we will enter on July 21st for a $5,000 Louisiana-bred Maiden Claiming race going 6 furlongs over the main track. If the race is a go, it will be run on Saturday, July 24th.     

7-7-10
Blazing Thunder broke last from the gate and trailed the field during the early part of the race. He settled in and made up some ground through the turn where he sat in 10th place. At the top of the stretch he began to run and moved into 7th place. Unfortunately, he could not reach the leaders and finished 7th seven lengths behind the winner. We will check his condition over the next few days and look to make some adjustments before our next race.

7-1-10
Blazing Thunder worked four furlongs in :50.6 over the main track this morning at Evangeline Downs.  He has been entered to run in the 9th race on Wednesday, July 7th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a $5,000 Maiden Claiming race going 6 furlongs on the main track. He is scheduled to break from post position #5 in the 12 horse field. Janaris Landry will have the mount for us once again, as we appear to be in position for a good run.

6-17-10
Blazing Thunder broke much better from the gate today and was well placed through the back stretch. He was 5th at the top of the stretch and quickly made a move to 4th. Unfortunately, he ran out of steam in the late stretch and finished 7th. We will give him a small break and look to race again in a few weeks.

6-11-10
Blazing Thunder has been entered to run in the 1st race on Thursday, June 17th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a $10,000 Maiden Claiming race going 6 1/2 furlongs on the main track. The "early" program has him slated to break from post position #10 in a 12 horse field. We will have Janaris Landry in the irons for us once again, and we are hoping the added distance will fit well with his late running style.

6-5-10
Blazing Thunder broke slowly from the gate and spotted the field 10 or more lengths. Our jockey Janaris Landry allowed him to settle and then slowly gain ground. At the top of the stretch, he was full of run and finished a very willing 5th. We will check his condition over the next few days and then begin looking for a good spot for his next race.

6-2-10
Blazing Thunder is scheduled to make his first start in the 5th race on Saturday, June 5th at Evangeline Downs. The race is a $15,000 Maiden Claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track. He will break from post position #2 in the 12 horse field. We have decided to put apprentice jockey Janaris Landry in the saddle for us, which gives us a five pound weight allowance.

5-29-10
Blazing Thunder breezed four furlongs from the starting gate at Evangeline Downs this morning in :51.2. After a brief break in training to rest, his time was much improved from his previous four furlong work-outs. We will look to enter for a race scheduled to run next weekend.

5-8-10
Blazing Thunder breezed five furlongs from the starting gate in a solid 1:05.8 this morning at Evangeline Downs. His time tied him for 10th best out of 13 horses who breezed the five furlong distance. He did as asked, and we will now begin looking at upcoming races for his career debut.
 
5-6-10
Anatolia was shipped to a farm in Poplarville, Mississippi today where she will begin her breaking training and start her initial conditioning. She will spend 60 or more days on the farm and then be placed in race training in preparation for her 2 year-old racing campaign.

4-30-10
Blazing Thunder breezed four furlongs  from the starting gate at Evangeline Downs this morning in :53.4. Today's breeze was done without company. We will look to breeze him again next weekend. Depending on the results of that work-out and his condition, we may begin looking for a spot for his racing debut.

4-21-10
Blazing Thunder breezed  four furlongs from the starting gate at Evangeline Downs this morning in :52. If he continues to progress in his development, we should look to race early May.

4-12-10
Blazing Thunder breezed an easy three furlongs in :37.2 this morning at Evangeline Downs. This was his second official workout.
 
4-9-10
Toms Breeze has suffered a career-ending injury. We had high hopes for the filly, but unfortunately she will be unable to continue.

4-4-10
We have agreed to partner on 2006 Louisiana-bred gelding Blazing Thunder. He is sired by Storm Day and out of Announce mare Specialanouncement. Storm Day had a successful racing career running second in the Turfway Park Fall Championship S. G-3 and third in the Warfield S. and Governor's H. He was a versatile and consistent runner winning or placing in 12 of 20 career starts on both the turf and dirt from 6 to 9 furlongs with earnings of $197,908. His progeny earnings total nearly $4.5 million with over 100 race winners.Blazing Thunder is in full race training and completed his first official two furlong breeze in :24.8 at Evangeline Downs on Friday, April 2nd. He will be trained by Shelton LeBlanc and will look to break his maiden at Evangeline Downs this spring.

4-2-10
Toms Breeze completed her first official three furlong breeze in :39 flat today at Evangeline Downs. Her time was 9th fastest out of 12 breezes. She will get a few days off and get back to work next week. 
 
3-26-10
Toms Breeze completed a very impressive unofficial work-out today on the main track at Evangeline Downs. She was very relaxed on the track and showed a very competitive spirit when running in the company of other horses. We are pointing to an official work-out on Friday, April 2nd or Saturday, April 3rd.  

3-19-10
We have decided to move Toms Breeze to Trainer Shelton LeBlanc. Darren is a young upstart trainer who stables his horses at Pete LeBlanc Stables in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.  He will split training time between the fully equipped stable and the Evangeline Training Center.

3-4-10
Toms Breeze is steadily rounding into condition. She will begin some short work next week and hopefully complete an officially timed breeze in a few weeks. The first Evangeline Downs Condition Book is out, and the Louisiana-bred races will once again offer very lucrative purse money. Our now 2 Year-Old filly, Anatolia, is enjoying her time eating and growing on the farm. We are hopeful that she will be ready to begin the breaking process in May or early June. 
                                                                                                                                                                                      
2-4-10
Toms Breeze arrived at Pink Crown Farms on Sunday, January 31st. She is beginning to adapt to the daily routine at the training center. This 4 year-old chestnut filly by Thunder Breeze has good size and should be very competitive this spring with state-bred racing company.
 
1-11-1o
We have agreed to partner in the acquisition of 2006 Louisiana-bred filly Toms Breeze.  She is by sire THUNDER BREEZE and out of 11 race winner Crystal Manor. Thunder Breeze is a stakes winner and multiple stakes placed winner of $267,200. Toms Breeze has been breezing in preparation for full race training beginning in February at Pink Crown Farms in Longview, Texas. She should be ready to begin her racing career this Spring, when the Evangeline Downs Meet opens in early April. She will be trained by up-and-coming trainer Laura Daily. 

12-13-09
Nile Tigress has been sold via private purchase. She will get the extended time off she needs before she begins training for her new career in the field of Dressage. Good Luck to her new owner. 

12-5-09
Nile Tigress finished a disappointing 7th. She broke fairly well, but quickly retreated. She is most likely due for some extended well deserved rest, as she has had an aggressive training and racing schedule. We will check her condition and determine what is best for her.

11-30-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #1 at Fair Grounds Race Course. The 6 furlong race will run on the main track on Saturday, December 5th. This race is for$10,000 claimers who have never won three races, with a $15,000 total purse. We will have apprentice jockey Chester Bonnet in the saddle for us, and as such we will get a 5 lbs weight allowance. We are slated to break from the 1st post position in a 7 horse field.  Nile has been training well with trainer Elliott Necaise , and we expect to be more competitive this time out.  

11-8-09
Nile Tigress broke from the gate in pretty good fashion, but the leaders quickly got away from her. Unfortunately, she had to take a wide trip the entire race finishing in 8th position. We will give her a few weeks of rest before racing again, as we have had a pretty aggressive racing schedule over the last month or two.
 
11-5-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #4 at Fair Grounds Race Course. The 5 1/2furlong sprint on the Sunday, November 8th will be Nile's Fair Grounds debut. This race is for $8,000 - $10,000 claimers who have never won three races, with a $15,000 total purse. We will have nationally ranked jockey James Graham in the saddle for us in our racing meet debut. We are slated to break from the 1st post position in a 9 horse field.  The race represents a very competitive step up in class.  

10-27-09
Nile Tigress was delivered safely to the farm of trainer Elliott Necaise over the weekend. She will begin training later this week for her Fair Grounds Race Course debut sometime next month. Opening day for the Fair Grounds Meet is Friday, November 6th.

10-22-09
Nile Tigress was well placed throughout the race, but did not have her usual late kick needed to reach the front runners, as she finished 6th. This will conclude the racing meet for us at Hoosier Park. Tianna Richardville did a great job of training Nile, and Rodney Prescott did an excellent job in the saddle. We will give Nile a few days off before she prepares to travel to New Orleans where we have decided to compete at the Fair Grounds Race Course and possibly Delta Downs in Vinton, Louisiana. Nile will be trained by Elliott Necaise at Fair Grounds. 

10-20-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #8 at Hoosier Park, which is scheduled to run on Thursday, October 22nd. The race is a $5,000 claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track with a purse of $10,500. This will be another sprint race against a very strong field of contenders. She will break from the 3rd post in a 10 horse field.

10-11-09

Nile Tigress stalked the early speed horse but had nothing for the eventual 9 length winner. At the top of the stretch, she sat in 2nd place and battled gamely to maintain her 2nd place position, beating the 3rd place finisher by 1 length. This was an excellent effort on only 7 days of rest. We will check her condition over the next few days and determine if we race one more time before the meet ends.10-9-09
Nile Tigress is entered in Race #9 at Hoosier Park, which is scheduled to run on Sunday, October 11th. The race is a $5,000 claiming race going 6 furlongs on the main track with a purse of$10,500. This will be another sprint race, after a short 7 day break from her winning effort last Sunday. She will break from the 4th post in an 8 horse field.

Nile Tigress Surges to Victory !!!!!!!  Nile stalked the early speed horses, while biding her time. At the top of the stretch, she sat in 4th place. Our jockey, Rodney Prescott, guided her beautifully as she had to avoid a horse drifting into her path. In the final stages of the race, she surged to the front passing her final two rivals before crossing the finish line first by 1 3/4lengths.  Our Trainer, Tianna Richardville, has done an outstanding  job of continuing to develop Nile's full racing potential. We will check her condition and look to run again soon.

Nile Tigress ran mid pack early in the race but managed to stay close to the rail while saving ground. At the top of the stretch she was 4th,  but she was able to kick it into gear late to finish a game 2nd, missing the win by only 3/4 of a length. We will check her condition and look to run again soon.

The race is a $5,000 claiming race going 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track with a purse of $10,500. We have decided to go back to the familiar sprint distance, as she did not perform very well going a mile last time out. She will be breaking from the 2nd post in a 10 horse field. 

9-14-09
Anatolia, our first Louisiana-Bred racing prospect, arrived at Iron Horse Acres on Friday, September 11th.  Anatolia is a very impressive slowly graying 2008 yearling filly by PULLING PUNCHES, who is one of Louisiana's top sires.  We will monitor her development closely to determine if she has the ability to compete in 2010 as a 2 year-old or wait to start her as a 3 year-old in 2011.  

9-5-09
King Ty arrived safely at Iron Horse Acres today. He is a big impressive looking thoroughbred with a very athletic build, much like his sire FREUD. We will give him a day or two off due to his long trip from West Virginia, but he will soon begin intensive conditioning, as we are a little less than six weeks away from opening day at Delta Downs. He will be trained jointly by Byron Stevens and James I. Brown.

9-5-09
Nile Tigress again displayed her usual nervousness, as she was  fractious in the starting gate. She broke well but was checked slightly in the turn. She held 3rd place, only a few lengths behind the leader, as they turned for home. Unfortunately, she did not have anything left for the final run finishing 6th. We will check her condition and look to run her again soon.

We are excited to announce the addition of King Ty to our racing stable. He is an unraced 3 year-old New York-bred gelding. KT has a very strong pedigree, and we feel he can be very competitive on the Louisiana racing circuit. KT is sired by New York's leading sire FREUDand out of a Lord Carson mare. He is currently in transit from Mountaineer Park Race Track in Chester, WV. He is scheduled to arrive at Iron Horse Acres  (local farm and training facility) in Sunset, LA, on Saturday, Sept 5th. We should have him ready to race by opening day at Delta Downs in Vinton, LA. During today's "official" work out, he breezed a very good 3 furlongs in :36.40, which was a "Bullet" work out for the day.

8-16-09
Nile Tigress was forced to take a wide trip from the starting gate to the finish, going as much as 7-wide as she finished 7th. We will give Nile some rest before she returns to training and look to race again in a few weeks.

NILE TIGRESS WINS!!!! Through the falling rain and sloppy track at Indiana Downs, Nile Tigress starred down her rivals and drew away for the win in the stretch run. Our Trainer, Tianna Richardville, did a great job of preparing her for the race.

5-19-09
Nile Tigress was well positioned for the stretch run but lacked the late running effort needed to compete with the front runners. While this effort was not what we would have hoped for, we will be looking to shorten the distance of her next race, and most likely make a slight drop in class. We have to place her at a level at which she can compete.

5-15-09

5-5-09
Nile Tigress gave a very game effort early in the race, but did not have very much for the final run. She should improve from today's effort, as she appeared very accepting of the turf surface. We will check her condition over the next few days, and point to a race within the next two weeks.

5-1-09
We made the field for Race #2 at Indiana Downs, a Maiden Special Weight (MSW) race on May 5th. This is a pretty tough field. We will have to see if they keep it on the turf, as the weather has been pretty bad in the area.

4-30-09
