Storm Temple Pilot Breaks Maiden

Storm Temple Pilot broke her maiden in wire to wire fashion in the first at Evangeline Downs on Wednesday evening. She broke sharply from the gate and jumped out to a quick lead. Picante Caliente closed the gap relatively quickly and pressed the pace down the back side and through the turn. It looked as if she might make a run coming out of the turn, but Diego Saenz chirped a couple times and Storm Temple Pilot pulled away to an easy 2 3/4 length win.
