Delta Downs switches some post times


Delta Downs, the sister track of Evangeline, will have some schedule changes due to Christmas falling midweek. Delta will race Monday and Tuesday next week, and both cards will start at 1:15 p.m. Central.

Delta races at night, but with no other night simulcasts for those dates, the decision was made to shift to a daytime post, said Warren. Delta will not race Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. First post for Delta’s New Year’s Eve card has been moved up to 5 p.m. Central.

And we (owners and ownership groups) really need both Delta and Fair Grounds to write 2YO and 3YO (both genders, sprints and routes) races to give horses (at all levels) one last shot in their 2 and 3 year old campaigns. We only have 2 weeks to add wins (key for catalog pages or simply to pay the bills).. The NW 2 is key for graduates not at stakes level, too. Some graduates sitting sounds 3-6 months since graduating (especially 2YO routers). Statebred great, too, but whatever fills. Hang some 2 & 3 YO and put together creative cards...
