Horse Racing

Wednesday thru Saturday with the season ending on Saturday, September 8th.


The horsemen have been chomping at the bit so to speak and the first three night’s entries all featured a total of 122 horses, an average of 11.1 over the 33 races scheduled.” Lloyd added “Our solid stakes program, worth in excess of $1.7 million along with our total daily purse structure of approx. $200,000 a night, should provide plenty of incentive and opportunity for local horsemen as well as those in neighboring jurisdictions which should lead to a very exciting season.”


Post time for live racing will be 5:40 pm, Central Time.


For more information contact Evangeline Downs at 337-594-3000.

I’m guessing Big and Rich’s song “Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy” doesn’t really do justice for horse racers!
