BREAKING SPORTS: 9:45pm 5-14-08 Live Horse Racing Returns to Louisiana Downs Sat, May 17th
The 85-day live racing meet continues thru October 18th with racing on Saturdays and Sundays in May, and Thursday through Sunday, during the remainder of the meet.
The highlight of the 35th season at Louisiana Downs is the 29th running of the Super Derby, a $500,000 race for 3-year-olds, which will take place on Saturday, September 20th. Super Derby day features six stakes in all worth $1.25-million in purse money.
The grade two Super Derby is the premiere sporting event in Northwest Louisiana and has been won by such champions as Alysheba, Sunday Silence and Tiznow. Last year Going Ballistic defeated Grasshopper to capture the Super Derby and followed up that triumph with a win in the Oklahoma Derby.
Other meet highlights include Louisiana Downs Champions Day, a showcase day for Louisiana-breds scheduled for Saturday, August 2nd and Super Derby Prelude Day, which includes a series of preps for the Super Derby card on Saturday, August 16th. The big day, Super Derby Day, is slated for Saturday, September 20th.
The usual faces are also returning this year including 2007 leading trainer Jorge Lara and runner-up Pat Mouton. Jockey John Jacinto, who took down the title last year, is back as is Carlos Gonzalez. In terms of horses, nominations for six opening day stakes have been brisk.
There will be nine races a day on Fridays and Sundays, with ten on Thursdays and Saturdays. First race post time is 1:15pm with the exception of Fridays which will start at 3:10pm.
