On Saturday at Fair Grounds, the featured race is the $60,000 Tenacious Stakes. Carded at a mile and seventy yards on the main track, the stakes race has drawn a competitive field of seven colts and geldings.

Freestyler has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 3-1 for trainer Joe Sharp. A five-year-old son of Street Cry (IRE), the bay gelding has been on the board in eighteen of his 26 starts and is a ten-time winner. He is trying to earn his first black type victory and will be attempting to rebound after finishing sixth in a minor stakes race at Gulfstream Park earlier in December. Miguel Mena will be in the irons and they will break from post position five.

Ride on Curlin trying for first black type score

Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 is Ride On Curlin for trainer William Gowan. A four-year-old son of Curlin, he has been on the board in eleven of his seventeen starts and was the runner up in the 2014 edition of the Preakness Stakes (G1). He has three career victories and will be trying to notch his first stakes win. Francisco Torres will be aboard and they will break from post three as he tries to earn a breakthrough win.

Veteran Nates Mineshaft attempting to return to form

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is the veteran Nates Mineshaft. An eight-year-old ridgling, the bay son of Mineshaft is a multiple graded stakes winner with a total of nine career victories. He has struggled from ten starts this year, however, and has hit the board only three times. He was seventh last time out in the Thanksgiving Handicap and will break from the rail under Robby Albarado.
