It was a BIG win in Saturday's sixth race for the Lone Star Park Racing Club when their horse Lodi Street, was first at the wire.
The LSPRC was formed by Lone Star Park this season to give fans a chance to experience race horse ownership for a low cost per share. A total of 80 people joined the LSPRC, but were without a horse for the first few weeks. The clubs trainer, J. R. Caldwell, had dropped several claims for horses, but lost the shake on the first three. Lodi Street (Street Move) was successfully claimed for the club two weeks ago and was entered for today's race by Caldwell.
Nearly all of the clubs 80 share owners were on hand for the race to cheer on Lodi Street. It was a thrilling finish! With jockey Lane Luzzi in the irons, Lodi Street settled in middle of the field for the first half of the race, moved out in upper stretch rallying into the final furlong, making a bid at the sixteenth pole to prevail by three quarters of a length at the wire. Final time for the six and a half furlong race on a fast main track was 1:18.11. Early fractions were 23.00 and 45.83.
What an exciting day for the LSPRC members getting their first winner's circle picture from their first attempt!
