NEW ORLEANS (Wednesday, February 12, 2014) â€“Time Will Tell LLC and Last Mango Racing Stableâ€™s H an Fâ€™s Sensation, who scored the second win of his brief career in first level allowance company at Delta Downs on Jan. 18, may rule the choice when he heads a field of eight accredited Louisiana-bred sophomores in Saturdayâ€™s 33rd running of the $60,000 Gentilly Stakes at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.
The restricted stakes race is scheduled at about one mile over the Stall-Wilson turf course and will be complemented by the 12th renewal of the $60,000 Sarah Laneâ€™s Oates Stakes for 3-year-old accredited Louisiana-bred fillies as the afternoonâ€™s supporting feature.
Danny Brown and Wes Hawleyâ€™s Artist Cry, with back-to-back victories in her last two starts, both on the Stall-Wilson, gets a slight edge when she faces nine rivals in that test, also on the lawn at about one mile.

Artist Cry, conditioned by Wes Hawley, also has Graham slated for the saddle.

P Tâ€™s Jewel, who won her last two starts by a combined 19 lengths but will be making her first start over grass, is owned and trained by Artist Cryâ€™s same connections.
