Congrats go out to “Fiesta Grace”, your winner of the 2021 Southland Derby Consolation stakes at Southland Casino & Racing last Saturday afternoon.

“Gracie” as she is known as in the kennel, ran a career best winning time of 31.67 when she sailed past the finish line first for trainer Natalie Looper of the Gloria Dorsey Kennel.

She didn’t take long to establish her dominance in the race, going box to wire and opening a big lead past the first turn of the race that nobody in the field could catch.

She went off at 5-1 odds to win the race, returning $12.20 for every $2 placed on her nose to win. She is owned by Jeff Blair and Michael Montoya.

Barts Blue Blood finished second for the Charter Kennel while Northshore Kennel’s fan favorite, Chillaxification rallied for third.
