Fair Grounds notes: Wednesday feature looks wet


The featured eighth race on Wednesday, a second-level allowance also open to $40,000 claimers, is carded for about 1 1/8 miles on turf, but expecting turf races to actually be contested on turf has recently been a losing enterprise in New Orleans. Turf racing was conducted on both Dec. 20 and Dec. 21, but grass races were moved to the main track because of wet conditions in five of the six racing days since then.
