Star Guitar aims for millionaire status in Champions Day Classic


Living Louisiana legend Star Guitar will hope to earn his 13th stajes win versus fellow Cajun-bred runners when leading the field in the $150,000 Classic s. at Fair Grounds on Saturday, the headliner of Louisiana Champions Day. The Albert Stall, Jr. charge has won 14 of 20 life, including 6 of 8 at this oval with a romp in this event last campaign. The son of Quiet American could go over $1 million in earnings with a top performance against his field from the rail.

Gold Cup S. romper Snug, hard-knocking stakes veteran Ide Like A Double and the capable Productive Envoy, are the main dangers to the sure fire odds on choice.

The other events on this big day of racing include the $100,000 Juvenile S. featuring unbeaten Toro Bravo, $100,000 Ladies H. with Superior Storm going for a three-peat, $100,000 Ladies Sprint, $100,000 Lassie S., $100,000 Sprint S., $100,000 Turf H. with Desert Wheat looking for a third win in his fifth appearance in this race, and the $50,000 Starter S.
