(Opelousas, La.) - Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino is expecting to continue the trend of across-the-board gains in several major categories for the 2008 racing season. Coming off of the 2007 spring/summer season which posted gains in total handle, on-track handle, purse distribution, and average field size, officials are expecting more of the same this year.
The 2008 season begins on April 9, promising a record stakes schedule that will feature 25 events worth a record $2.015 million, up more than 12% from last year.
The 85 night schedule will feature races every Wednesday-Saturday thru Labor Day, Monday, September 1. Post time each race night is 6:20 p.m.
