Few performances so far this 2016-17 Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots meet have been more dominating than that of Jenda’s Agenda on Saturday. Owned, trained and bred by Larry Jones, the newly turned 3-year-old daughter of Proud Citizen and Jones-trained and -owned multiple graded stakes winner Just Jenda wired a six-furlong heat by 6¼ lengths under a hand ride from Gabriel Saez. The time was even more impressive on a frigid winter afternoon – 1:10.75, while closing her final quarter in 24.47 under her own will.
“Her mother was the best horse we ever had (as owners),” Jones said. “It’s great to get one to the races like her. It’s a shame it took a little while for her to do so. She had to grow through some issues and mature, but it’s always nice to win first-time out. She’s been working very well.”
While a next start has yet to be decided, it is certain that the three-time Grade I Kentucky Oaks-winning conditioner has a fourth on his mind. On Sunday morning, Jones reported that the bay filly came out of her effort well.
