Some of the best racing actions and most interesting handicapping you will ever experience happens every Wednesday through Saturday night right here in Acadiana. Evangeline Downs is known for having great purses, large fields, and enough longshots winners to keep the most savvy handicapper on his or her toes.

Wednesday night's card at Acadiana's race track was no exception. Race 4 and Race 5 both featured winners who went off with double digit odds. In Race 4 Tap on This bested the field in a one mile maiden claiming race with a pay out of $20.60 on a two dollar win bet.

In the following race, Race 5, Hunters Hurricane was first under the wire in a 7 furlong claiming race and he paid $24.40 on a two dollar win bet. While those payouts were nice, they weren't the biggest of the evening.

Race 7 found a field of 3 year olds and up in the gate set to go 7 furlongs in a $5,000 claiming race. In post position 5 was Royalee Bred. This horse had odds of better than 50-1. By the time the race was over, those that held a ticket with Royalee Bred as the winner were quite excited.

The $2 win wager garnered speculators a nice return of $124.00 on a two dollar bet. The place payout was $36.00 and the horse paid $14.80 in the show position.

Live racing returns tonight at Evangeline Downs with first post time set for 5:45pm.
