Overflow field for Mardi Gras


The Mardi Gras revelers will have about run out of steam when older filly and mare turf sprinters take to the track late Tuesday afternoon at Fair Grounds for the $60,000 Mardi Gras Stakes. And if the field that was entered mainly holds together, the Fair Grounds grass course will be nearly as crowded as Bourbon Street during the height of Carnival.
