DELTA DOWNS RELEASES STAKES SCHEDULE FOR 2021-22 THOROUGHBRED SEASON

– 84-DAY MEETING GETS UNDERWAY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13 –

 

VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel today announced its 2021-22 Thoroughbred stakes schedule. The track will offer 26 stakes races during an 84-day season that runs from October 13 through March 5. The stakes schedule includes $2.275 million in total purse money.

 

This year’s stakes activity will kick off on opening weekend with a pair of added-money events. On Friday, October 15 the track will host the $100,000 Magnolia for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares and on Saturday, October 16 the $100,000 Gold Cup for Louisiana-bred 3-year-olds and upward will take center stage to close out the first week of racing.

 

The richest race day of the season will happen on Saturday, February 5 when Delta Downs hosts another edition of Louisiana Premier Night, which will offer a total of $895,000 in purse money for Louisiana-bred horses. The highlight of the evening will come in the $150,000 Louisiana Premier Night Championship for older horses. The most famous winner of the Championship was Star Guitar, who scored four consecutive victories in the race between 2009 and 2012 and later finished his career as the highest earning Louisiana-bred in history with over $1.7 million in purses won.

 

There will also be a couple of important simulcast dates to take note of during the upcoming season. This year’s set of 14 Breeders’ Cup races will take place on Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6. All the action from Del Mar in Southern California and can be watched and wagered on inside Delta Downs’ spacious OTB.

 

After Delta Downs’ opening weekend, the track will race each Wednesday and Thursday afternoon at 12:55 pm Central Time and each Friday and Saturday nights at 5:55 pm. Local race fans and simulcast enthusiasts will notice a major improvement to the track during nighttime race cards this year, as a new state-of-the-art lighting system is being installed prior to the start of the meet. Last year the track unveiled a brand new digital toteboard after Hurricane Laura that was a big hit among patrons.

Partial Interest Sold in Louisiana-bred 3-Year-Old No Parole

Moss said a decision on an upcoming race would likely not be made until next week.

 

Unbeaten Louisiana-bred 3-year-old No Parole will have an additional owner when he races next, perhaps a prep race toward the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1). Majority owner Maggi Moss said Feb. 13 she has sold a minority interest in the Violence  colt to Greg Tramontin.

No Parole—3-for-3 in state-bred competition—won his first two races at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots in six-furlong sprints before stretching out to two turns in the Feb. 8 Louisiana Bred Premier Night Prince Stakes at a mile at Delta Downs. Spurting to the lead, he relaxed and cruised under the wire 6 1/2 lengths in front under regular rider James Graham.
