Fair Grounds Race Course to suspend live racing operations until further notice

21 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- In accordance with the “stay-home” order issued by New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, following public health concerns in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots will suspend live racing operations effective immediately. The Fair Grounds Thoroughbred Racing Season was originally scheduled to run through March 29.

Fair Grounds Race Course remains focused on the safety of members of the backside community who are vital to ensuring the care of the horses. In compliance with the Louisiana Racing Commission’s emergency order, we are committed to facilitating their safe and customary movement to tracks outside of New Orleans.

Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots is dedicated to doing our part to help fight this public health crisis. We regret any inconvenience this announcement may have caused our fans and will continue to coordinate closely with federal, state and local authorities to minimize exposure risk for those on our property.

As mentioned previously, the slots facility and all OTB facilities remain closed until relevant authorities determine it is appropriate to reopen.
