Evangeline Downs in Opelousas is putting on the biggest night in Louisiana Thoroughbred Racing with a $600,000 purse.

On Saturday, attendees will get the chance to meet some legendary jockeys and listen to live music.

"In Louisiana, we have a rather robust racing community and so there’s a lot of horses that are bred, Louisiana bred horses are a precious commodity around the country," said Anthony Breaux, Director of Marketing. "We’ve had many that have run in the Triple Crown, all around."
     
The horses will be lined up just before six.
