Bayou Handicap has Listed Status Restored

The Feb. 23 race at Fair Grounds had been downgraded after being moved to main track.

The Feb. 23 renewal of the Bayou Handicap, a race scheduled for the Fair Grounds turf course but switched to the main track, was reinstated to Listed status following a review by the American Graded Stakes Committee.

The race had been automatically downgraded to non-listed black type status pending the AGSC review.

The winner of the race, Snuggs and Kisses, is credited with a Listed win, while runner-up Daisy Devine and third-place Ausus are credited with Listed placings.
