Race 5 is a $46,000 allowance race going six furlongs and will feature the 2/1 morning line favorite Sincerity for trainer Danny Pish with Gabriel Saez aboard. The 3-year-old daughter of Mucho Macho Man exits a third place finish in the Louisiana Champions Day Lassie in early December.
Race 8, a Lousiana bred $40,000 maiden special weight race going five and one half furlongs on the turf drew a full field of nine.
