109-1 Hero of Order Wins Louisiana Derby | BloodHorse.com
No fooling, 109-1 shot Hero of Order won the $1 million Louisiana Derby (gr. II) April 1 at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots ().
Favored Mark Valeski had every opportunity to win but could not close the deal in deep stretch, allowing lightly regarded Hero of Order to prevail by a half-length with Eddie Martin Jr. aboard for the first time on closing day of the 2011-12 season at the New Orleans track. Hero of Order paid an eye-popping $220.80, $79.80, and $25.40 across the board. It was a record win payoff for the Louisiana Derby.
