LTBA Office Delays Open Time Until 10:00 a.m.
The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association realizes that for many of our members, a breeders awards check is crucial to their livelihoods. Even in the face of the coronavirus, our staff is committed to the business of making sure our breeders receive what they have earned through our program.
However, for the health and safety of our employees as well as that of horsemen and all backside workers, the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association has elected to delay opening our office at Fair Grounds Racetrack until 10:00 a.m. to reduce the chances for contact. At the present time, we intend to remain open until 4:00 p.m. As soon as possible, we intend to return to normal office hours.
We do request that any persons with LTBA business, contact us via telephone (504) 947-4676 or by email <Roger@louisianabred.com>. If you have pressing business that must be handled in person, we will have a skeleton crew working in our office. The majority of our business can be handled by phone or over the internet. Our staff is working on a rotating basis, so if we do not answer your call, please leave a message so that we can return your call. We ask for your patience if we take a little longer than usual to respond as we try to navigate through these un-precedented times.
We thank you for your patience as we sort through the day-to-day updates and how this is affecting your business.
