Louisiana Champions Day Features Top Thoroughbred Racing and Champions Day to Showcase Star Guitar, Superior Storm
Champions Days Gala Hosts Auction to Benefit LTBA Scholarship Program and Louisiana Horse Rescue Association

(New Orleans, La.) - The stage is set for Louisiana's version of the Breeders Cup in the form of Louisiana Champions Day at Fair Grounds Race Course on Saturday, December 12.

Former winners and full fields serve as the headline attractions for the 19th annual Louisiana Champions Day Saturday at the Fair Grounds. "Louisiana born and bred thoroughbreds have been garnering national attention and Louisiana Champions Day is the perfect showcase for our own," said Tom Early, CEO for the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association.

Brittlyn Stable's Star Guitar appears poised to become the third Thoroughbred in history to win three times on a Louisiana Champions Day program in New Orleans in Saturday's 19th running of the $150,000 Louisiana Champions Day Classic at Fair Grounds.

Jac Mac Stable's Superior Storm is another Louisiana-bred on the cusp of joining the Louisiana Champions Day three-time winners club should she win Saturday's $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Ladies after winning last year's race. Two years ago she captured the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie.

Entries were taken Monday for the 11-race program of stakes races restricted to accredited Louisiana-breds offering purses totaling $1.1 million. The day's action includes three Quarter Horse races followed by eight Thoroughbred events. The richest race of the afternoon is the $150,000 Louisiana Champions Day Classic. Post time is 12:30 p.m.

The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA) is hosting its annual Champions Day Gala. The event is set for Friday evening at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, Louisiana and is held on the eve of the Louisiana Champions Day racing program.

As part of the Gala, LTBA hosts a live and silent auction to raise funds for its scholarship program and the Louisiana Horse Rescue Association. Several people and businesses connected with Louisiana racing have contributed items for the auction.
