Line Judge, a 2-year-old colt owned by Joni and Barry Butzow of Eden Prairie, is the 6 to 1 third choice on the morning line in Saturday’s $1 million Delta Jackpot at Delta Downs in Vinton, LA. Line Judge broke his maiden at Canterbury Park and won the Careless Navigator Stakes prior to a win in the $200,000 Jean Lafitte Stakes at Delta in October. Line Judge is trained by Joe Sharp and will be ridden by C.J. McMahon
The Delta Jackpot is the seventh race on an 11-race program that is offering more than $2.3 million in total purses. The winner of the 1 1/16 mile race will earn $600,000 and 10 points toward qualifying for the 2017 Kentucky Derby.
Delta will begin racing Saturday at 1:45 p.m. The Jackpot is scheduled for 4:45.
