OPELOUSAS, LA—DECEMBER 28, 2021—Two new roster additions for 2022, multiple graded stakes winner Hes Innocent and multiple stakes winner Love The Way You Fly, have arrived at Louisiana Center For Equine Reproduction in Opelousas and are now available for viewing.

"These are two very nice stallions, with two completely different looks, pedigree, and race record," stallion manager Stephen Deville says.

Owned by Priscilla Rodriguez, Hes Innocent has won or placed in 10 of 12 career starts and earned $358,134. The leading money earning son of champion Hes Relentless SI 107, won the Firecracker Futurity(G2) and Texas Classic Juvenile at 2 and the Firecracker Derby(G3) this season. He was also a finalist in the Texas Classic Derby(G1) Dash For Cash Derby (G2).

"Hes Innocent is a big, long, elegant stallion that stops you in your tracks with his size and color. He is a stallion that can get you a foal to go 440 yards and show up in the big races," Deville said.

Racing for owner Todd Matte, Love The Way You Fly won or placed in 14 of 20 career starts and earned $205,761.

"Love The Way You Fly is real muscular, with a lot of length and correctness about him, as well as a tremendous amount of speed from the gates," Deville says.

He won the $30,000 Scoopies Leaving You Stakes in his last start, October 18th while setting an Evangeline Downs Track Record for 250 yards in :12.832 seconds, a 116 speed index.

Love The Way You Fly also won the Flying Breed Stakes, LQHBA Louisiana Million Invitational; was second in the LQHBA Breeders Derby(G3), Gentilly Dash, EVD Dash; and third in the Old South Derby. He was also a finalist in the Laddie Futurity [RG2), Open Me A Corona Stakes(G2), Delta Downs Louisiana Bred Derby(RG3) and Vals Fortune Teddy Abrams Memorial Stakes.

"Love The Way You Fly will be paid into a few major barrel racing incentives that will have him as a great double market stallion for both race and barrels," Deville concluded.

Love The Way You Fly will stand his first season for $2,000, with consideration. (CLICK HERE for additional information.)
