Fireworks shows are exciting. Horse racing is even more exciting especially when the horse you picked is leading as they are closing in on the wire. Tonight at Evangeline Downs there will be a lot of Louisiana hearts  pounding as Acadiana's  Home Track proudly presents the Louisiana Legends Festival of Racing.

Tonight's race card features twelve live racing events. Eight of those races will feature Louisiana bred horses competing for a combined purse of $775,000.00. That is a lot of money but there is more than  money on the line. These races are for bragging rights and each trainer and each barn wants to show the others that their horses are the fastest.

The first post for tonight's live racing card is 5:40 pm.
