LTBA Office Closed Monday and Tuesday, September 14 & 15 Due to Hurricane Sally

The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association office will be closed Monday and Tuesday, September 14 and 15 as Hurricane Sally is predicted to affect New Orleans.

All Breeders’ data is backed up and will be in secure locations for the duration of the storm.

The office will re-open  as soon as it is safe to do so, hopefully Wednesday. Please check back on our website for updates.

We appreciate your patience and pray for the safety of all in the face of this hurricane

LTBA Office Open with Limited Service

The LTBA office is open today, August 25, 2020. However, with Hurricane Laura looming in the Gulf of Mexico, our computers remain out of service in order to protect the breeders’ data.

LTBA Executive Director Roger Heitzmann is in the office today to take care of any business that can be handled strictly by phone. He is monitoring the weather situation and plans to re-install computer operations as soon as he can be confident that Hurricane Laura is no longer a threat. All computers are backed up and the servers are in secure locations. With the unpredictability of hurricanes, the LTBA believes it is in everyones best interest to keep the computers offline at this time.

While Hurricane Marco has been thankfully downgraded, we encourage all to keep your guard up and continue to prepare for Hurricane Laura which is currently predicted to make landfall on the Texas/Louisiana border as a Category 2 or 3 hurricane. This can still have serious weather hazards all across the state.

The LTBA will update our status as conditions change. Thank you for your patience, and continued prayers for the safety of our members.
