Make horse racing at Louisiana Downs great again

Louisiana horse racingLetter to the Editor of the Shreveport Times in Louisiana:

“Getting ready to go to Louisiana Downs for opening day at Oaklawn last week. Oaklawn [Park] is one of the top tracks in the nation and the track that I am about to go to used to be one as well.

Louisiana Downs has fell off so bad from the way it was in late ’70s and throughout most of the ’80s and ’90s. When the casinos arrived the racetrack begin its decline to where we find it today.

The biggest race held at Louisiana Downs is the Super Derby. It used to draw top horses now it should be called the Uper Derby case it has been hit with kryptonite.

Louisiana Downs can can come back to its heyday if it only had the right people at the helm. Please Harrah’s do something, there are people who still love the track for more than going to the casino.”
