Louisiana Champions Day Salutes the Military

(New Orleans, La.) - The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA) and The Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots are saluting all branches of the military on Louisiana Champions Day, December 8, 2012.

Representatives from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy will be honored at the Gala on December 7 as well as on Champions Day. They will be presenting all trophies and awards to the winning owners, trainers and jockeys for each of the Louisiana Champions Day races.

The Louisiana Champions Day Gala celebrates the breeders, owners and people who serve the Louisiana horse industry. It is held the evening before the Louisiana Champions Day racing program. Silent and live auction proceeds benefit Louisiana Horse Rescue and the year-long scholarship program.

Louisiana Champions Day features $1.1 million in stakes races for Louisiana bred racehorses. It is one of the richest days in horse racing in Louisiana that rewards the breeders and owners of Louisiana breds.

"A Marine detail will present the colors and Chris Gray will sing the National Anthem," said Roger Heitzmann, secretary/treasurer for LTBA. "We are privileged to honor the men and women who serve our country and secure our freedom. We encourage fans to thank these brave men and women every day."
