Sittin At the Bar earns big bonus after 4th straight stakes win

Into Mischief

Saturday, September 21, 2013
Into Mischief's Sittin At the Bar won twice Saturday at Louisiana Downs: She finished first in the $150,000 Elge Rasberry S. and simultaneous earned a $100,000 bonus from the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (VIDEO).

Sittin At the Bar is the first horse to win the Bayou State Bonus, created in 2006, which is tied to the annual yearling auction put on by the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association. She was eligible for the bonus by virtue of her wins in the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie at Fair Grounds last December and the $75,000 Crescent City Oaks at the same track in March.

The one mile and 70 yard Rasberry was originally carded on the turf, but came off after heavy rains. Sittin At the Bar actually had to split the winner's accolades after hitting the wire on even terms with Kisses for Carrots. It was eight lengths back to the third-place finisher in the race for 3-year-old fillies.

Sittin At the Bar has now won 8 of 13 starts and $578,140. Of her wins, seven have come in stakes. She was bred by Spendthrift Farm out of the stakes-winning mare Fast Laner.

Second-crop sire Into Mischief has had another excellent year at stud, and is currently ranked sixth on the 2013 Sophomore Sire list with $2.2 million in progeny earnings.
