HEZA LOUISIANA DASH WINS THE OPELOUSAS STAKES

 

 SCORES SECOND STAKES WIN OF THE EVANGELINE DOWNS SEASON

 

OPELOUSAS, LA – TM Ranch’s Heza Louisiana Dash took the lead shortly after the start of the $40,000 Opelousas Stakes at Evangeline Downs on Saturday night and never looked back, winning in a final time of 19.606 seconds for the 400 yards. That time equaled a speed index of 99 over the fast track for the Kenneth Roberts, Sr. trainee.

 

A 21-1 longshot, Louisiana Legends, broke on top in the Opelousas Stakes, but was overtaken shortly thereafter by Heza Louisiana Dash, who was ridden to victory by John Hamilton. Louisiana Legends managed to hold on for second, while another 35-1 longshot, Icanonlyemagine, survived a multi-horse photo to finish third. The even-money favorite, Open Me a Corona, did not fire at all and eventually finished eighth in the field of 10.

 

The win in the Opelousas Stakes gives Heza Louisiana Dash nine wins in 19 lifetime starts and it is the second consecutive stakes win at Evangeline Downs for the 4-year-old gelding this season. He had previously won the $30,000 Amelia Belle Stakes on October 1. The $24,000 first-place purse increases his career earnings to $334,115.

 

Heza Louisiana Dash was bred in Louisiana by Jumonville Farms/Burnett Ranch. He is by Heza Fast Dash(standing at Robicheaux Ranch in Breaux Bridge, LA) and out of the Mr. Jess Perry mare, Eyejesslovelouisiana.
