Virginia-bred Que Paso came up the inside and rolled to a 3 1/2-length win over favorite Mogumbo Cat in the $75,00 Unbridled at Louisiana Downs on Saturday.

The Unbridled was originally scheduled for turf, but after a week of rains it was moved to the main track. The situation did not concern trainer Allen Milligan. Que Paso, who had registered four of his 10 career wins on turf, came into the Unbridled off a main track win at Remington Park.

“I was okay either way,” Milligan said. “Everybody says he’s better on dirt than turf. I say either way.”
Que Paso ($7) trailed early, as Becky’s Express led the field through six furlongs in 1:12.40. The eventual winner rallied up the rail, going on to cover the mile and a sixteenth in 1:44.07. The track was upgraded from good to fast for the Unbridled.

Don Simington was aboard for owner Coby Tresner. Que Paso earned $45,000 for the win to push his career earnings to $231,118.

Milligan said Que Paso could make his next start in the $150,000 Remington Green at a mile and a sixteenth on turf on the Oklahoma Derby undercard Oct. 11.
