NEW ORLEANS (Saturday, December 1, 2012) – Stoneway Farms’ Estonia,unhurried early, swung outside the leaders to launch a bid when set down for the drive, gained the advantage at the furlong grounds and drew off for a three-length tally in Saturday’s $47,000 Fair Grounds allowance and $50,000 optional claiming feature for juvenile fillies.

Trained by Neil Howard and ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan, Estonia paid $7.80, $4.60 and $2.60, toured the mile and 70-yard distance in 1:47.29 and increased her career earnings to $42,700 with her second victory in three career starts.
