Iota filly racing in Breeders’ Cup

By SHEILA SMITH and HOLLI BRUCHHAUS

IOTA – When the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies gets underway this weekend in Los Angeles, Calif., Designer Legs will be the fourth horse from Louisiana to ever compete in the 1 1/16-mile long race.

She will also be the first horse from Iota to boast a run in the Breeders’ Cup.

“We know it’s a long shot but I feel good about it. A lot of long shots have won; it’s not an easily predicted race,” said Designer Legs’ breeder, Tommy Hewett of Iota.

And it’s a major honor and accomplishment for Hewett and his wife, Rita, who only established their Coulee Croche’ Thoroughbreds, LLC, in 2010.
