Email

Louisiana Downs has drawn entries for its all-turf card for Saturday. The seven races on the program are all scheduled to be run over the Franks course, with the highlight a $17,500 optional-claiming race at a mile. There were 62 horses entered for Saturday.

Louisiana Downs plans to bring in its former announcer, Travis Stone, as a special guest. Stone just called the recent meet at Churchill Downs. First post is 3:15 p.m. Central. The long-range Weather Channel forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 98 degrees, with a 10 percent chance of precipitation.

This is actually this is a great idea .a couple of years ago I would be all over this .but my interest in horse racing is diminishing every day. Too much cheating ,too many despicable rides .too many needle trainers. The whole game is now a sham.
