LITTLE BIT TRASHY SURGES TO WIN THE $458,180 LEE BERWICK MEMORIAL FUTURITY
JANET VANBEBBER SADDLES A TRIO OF STAKES WINNERS ON CLOSING NIGHT
VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs closed out its 2011 American Quarter Horse season on Sunday night with a 10-race program billed as Louisiana Showcase Night. The evening featured seven stakes races for Louisiana-bred horses including the season’s richest race, the $458,180 Lee Berwick Memorial Futurity (R-Gr. I).
The Lee Berwick was won by the Janet VanBebber trainee, Little Bit Trashy with jockey Juan Vasquez in the saddle. Little Bit Trashy is owned by Robert Latham.
After breaking away from the starting gate in third position, Little Bit Trashy slowly gained on the leaders before making a final surge near the finish line that put him a neck in front of The Real Game, who finished second. Mr Silver Slew wound up another half-length behind in third.
All the races on Louisiana Showcase Night were contested on a fast track, including the 350-yard Lee Berwick, which was clocked in stakes record time of 17.231 seconds. The time equaled a speed index of 104 for Little Bit Trashy.
The victory by Little Bit Trashy marked the third straight of his four-race career. The winner’s paycheck of $229,090 raised his career bankroll up to $248,290. Ironically his first win came in a $10,000 claiming race at Delta Downs on May 20.
Little Bit Trashy is a 2-year-old sorrel gelding by Game Patriot, out of the Streakin La Jolla mare Della Loom. He was bred in Louisiana by Wade, Jr. and Kay Loup.
Sent off as the second choice in a field of 10 at odds of 6-1, Little Bit Trashy paid $14.60 to win, $6.20 to place, and $3 to show. The Real Game returned $11.80 to place and $8.20 to show. Mr Silver Slew was worth $6 to show.
