Storms force officials to cancel remainder of card


OPELOUSAS, La. – Evangeline Downs management canceled the remainder of Saturday’s 12-race Evangeline Turf Sprint program after torrential rains hit the area following the first race. The skies opened just as the horses were arriving to the paddock for the second race, and following almost an hour delay, the decision was made to pull the plug on the meeting’s biggest card.
