Trainer, wife robbed at Fair Grounds


A trainer and his wife were robbed at gunpoint early Friday morning just outside the Belfort Street entrance to Fair Grounds. The trainer, Ignatius Henry, had just driven to Fair Grounds and was headed to the receiving barn with two horses he had entered to run at the track Friday.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which occurred at about 3:30 a.m. Fair Grounds security officials were working with the New Orleans Police Department on Friday to piece together more information about the robbery.
