Dontmesswithjoanne started off 2018 with a 1 1/2-length allowance victory Jan. 15 at Fair Grounds, coming from last to first in the final quarter-mile of the “about” one-mile turf contest for older fillies and mares.

Ridden confidently by Florent Geroux, Dontmesswithjoanne was in the rear of the six-horse field until the top of the stretch, when she went four-wide and closed very strongly to surge to the lead in mid-stretch and pulled away late to secure the win.

The 4-year-old daughter of Pioneerof the Nile is now 3-2-1 in nine starts and has earned $113,495. She is trained by Brad Cox.
