2011 Sales Graduate Eligible For $100,000 Bonus
(New Orleans, La.) – Sittin At The Bar, a 2011 graduate of the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, is eligible for the $100,000 Bayou State Bonus if she wins the Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes.
The Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes is for three year-old Louisiana bred fillies that went through the ring of a Louisiana based yearling sale and remained eligible with a $50 payment as a two-year old and a $100 payment as a three-year old.  The one-mile race on turf is scheduled for September 21 at Louisiana Downs with a $150,000 purse.
To be eligible for the $100,000 bonus in 2013, the filly had to win the 2012 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie and the 2013 Crescent City Oaks.
In the 2012 $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie at The Fair Grounds in New Orleans, restricted to Louisiana-bred 2-year-old fillies, Dale Ladner’s Sittin At the Bar, with Mark Guidry up, rallied outside the leaders in the stretch run and drew off for a popular eight-length score. Sittin At the Bar returned $3.40 straight, toured the six furlongs in 1:11.10 with her second win from four starts. 
On March 30, 2013, Sittin At The Bar won the $75,000 Crescent City Oaks at The Fair Grounds in New Orleans, Louisiana. She won the Crescent City Oaks for trainer Brett A. Brinkman with Shaun Bridgmohan in the irons. The race was One Mile And Seventy Yards and she won by ¾ length.
Spendthrift Farm LLC bred the 2010 bay filly by Into Mischief out of Fast Laner by Mutakddim. Lander purchased the filly at the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana in 2011. Sittin At The Bar has started in 12 races, won seven, placed second twice and third once. Her total earnings to date are $418,140.
All accredited Louisiana bred foals of 2012 auctioned in this year’s sale are eligible for the Bayou State Bonus. Any such colt/gelding sold in this sale winning the 2014 Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile, the 2015 Crescent City Derby, and the 2015 A.L. “Red” Erwin Memorial Stakes will receive a $100,000 bonus at the completion of the final race. Any such filly sold in this sale winning the 2014 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie, the 2015 Crescent City Oaks, and the 2015 Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes will receive a $100,000 bonus at the official completion of the final race.
The bonus paid will be added to the earnings of the winning horse and paid to the owner of the horse after the official completion of the final race.
The sale can be viewed via a web-cast on the website beginning at 11:00 a.m. CT.
