Power has been restored to the LTBA office as of Monday morning, November 2nd. The office will open at 11:00 a.m. We hope to have all systems up and functional at that time. We ask for your continued patience as we get all of our services back up and running. Thank you!
Regular office hours of 8 am to 4 pm will resume Tuesday.
The LTBA office remains closed this morning, Thursday, October 29, 2020. The office currently is without power or telephones due to Hurricane Zeta. We plan to re-open as soon as we have both. Please check back.
With Hurricane Zeta approaching the Louisiana coast, for the safety of our staff, the LTBA office is closed today, October 28. Prayers for safety for everyone who might be affected.
With Hurricane Delta approaching the Louisiana coast, for the safety of our staff, the LTBA office is closing at 12:00 noon today, October 9. Prayers for safety for everyone who might be affected.
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
The LTBA office is open with computers fully operational.
Prayers for all who have been affected by Hurricane Laura as well as those in the path of this still powerful storm as she makes her way up through Louisiana.
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.
