(Opelousas, La.) - The 2012 Evangeline Downs Thoroughbred Racing Season is fast approaching at the gate! Racing Wednesdays through Saturdays beginning at 5:40 p.m. nightly, the action kicks off April 18 and continues through September 8.


Not only does the Thoroughbred Season feature 84 days of racing excitement, this year we are hosting events and promotions all season long in our Clubhouse, paddock area and trackside. The live action of racing has deep roots in the Cajun culture along with a party atmosphere for people of all ages.



Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino is the first “Racino” built in this country from the ground up. We feature a state-of-the-art facility with a one mile oval, 7/8-mile turf course, a 1 1/8-mile chute and nearly 1,000 stalls on the backside. The entire property consists of nearly 750 acres. There is a pond in the infield, but no alligators (that we know of).
