3YO CALAMITY JANE Rallies to Win Louisiana Cup Distaff
Stakes placed on dirt and turf in her last two starts, CALAMITY JANE put in a strong drive through the stretch to win the blacktype Louisiana Cup Distaff S. by 3/4 length. The 3-year-old filly from COWBOY CAL’s third crop was seventh after a half, but began to improve her position as they neared the top of the stretch. She angled out for the run home and beat her rivals with 1 1/4 lengths covering the first four finishes in this 1 1/16-mile turf event at Louisiana Downs. The consistent filly now has four wins and three placings in seven starts this year. In her last race CALAMITY JANE finished runner-up in the $100,000 Louisiana Legends Soiree S. at a mile on turf, and before that placed in the seven-furlong Acadiana S. on dirt. Lifetime record: 11-4-2-3, $162,149. O-Keith Plaisance. B-J. Adcock & Hume Wornall. T-Edward J. Johnston.
