Wells Bayou Wins the Louisiana Derby

At a time when nothing is normal because of the Wuhan virus. And when rain was in the forecast, but didn't fall - at all. And Fair Grounds decided that in light of the virus, they were going to forego the remaining 5 days of racing in favor of calling it quits for the 2019-20 season at the conclusion of the final race on Saturday.

And with all that, Wells Bayou, breaking from post position 3, took a commanding lead from the start of the newly distanced 1 3/16ths miles Louisiana Derby and never looked back.
