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.For the complete story and more local news, please subscribe to Jennings Daily News by clicking subscribe or by calling 337-824-3011.
