Tensas Harbor could fare well on turf or dirt in Matron Stakes


OPELOUSAS, La. – The first stakes action of the young Evangeline Downs season is set for Friday night as a full field of 12 fillies and mares is set to go in the $60,000 Matron Stakes. The one-mile test is slated for the turf, but handicappers and horsemen should prepare for a possible move to the main track if the recent weather pattern in Cajun country continues.
