Designer Legs' win in the Grade 2 Adirondack was a victory for her home state of Louisiana, according to a report by The Shreveport Times.

Roger Heitzmann, executive director of the Breeders' Sale Co of Louisiana, said the Adirondack is representative of a changing tide in the state, where the legislature has reduced taxes for winnings on the track, and the state-bred program's strict requirements are starting to pay off and bring in new bloodlines.

Heitzmann estimates that about 3,500 horses are born each year in Louisiana, where average prices at the state's upcoming yearling sale at Ike Hamilton Expo Center could reach as high as $50,000 to $`100,000.
