Foreign Production Wins Sunday Feature

Foxwood Plantation’s Foreign Production broke in full stride to make the pace and continued willingly in the late stages to win Sunday’s $46,000 six-furlong allowance sprint for accredited Louisiana-breds by a length and three-quarters.

Trained by Sweet Hodges and ridden by Carlos Gonzalez, the 4-year-old gelding toured the distance in 1:09.86 after recording early splits of 22.49 and 45.90, increased his career earnings to $214,840 with his sixth victory in 12 lifetime starts and returned mutuels of $10.80, $6.60 and $8.40.

H & H Ranch’s Ide Ball, allowed to settle early, could not match the winner but was clearly second best, finishing 1 1/4-lengths to the good of Heiligbrodt Racing Stable’s Hear No Angel. Ide Ball paid $10.40 and $9.60 and Hear No Angel returned $5.40.

Racing resumes Monday at Fair Grounds with a 10-race program beginning at 1:10 p.m.
