Picks and Ponderings: Lecomte Stakes Day

This weekend, the three-year-old open stakes races at Fair Grounds get underway with the Grade III Lecomte Stakes and the listed Silverbulletday Stakes.  Joining those on the card are three more stakes races: the Col. E. R. Bradley Handicap (GIII) for turf routers, the Marie G. Krantz Memorial Stakes for turf route fillies, and the listed Louisiana Stakes for the older dirt-running set.  It is a classy day of racing.

Picks and Ponderings has previews for all five stakes.  I dove into the Silverbulletday and the Louisiana Stakes, and Paul took on the Lecomte, the Bradley, and the Krantz.  Paul also wrote a detailed preview of the Bradley for the Blood-Horse, so be sure to read that as well.
