Bravazo beats long odds to win Risen Star

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Bravazo beat a star-studded field at the Risen Star Stakes with 21-1 odds. The official margin of victory was a nose. Bravazo is trained by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas.

Miguel Mena took the mount only two days ago after jockey Gary Stevens backed out to run another horse.

Bravazo is expected to return to the Fair Grounds for the March 24 Louisiana Derby. Bravazo already has enough points to qualify for the Kentucky Derby.
