Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association Announces Scholarship Event
For August 2 at Louisiana Downs


(Bossier City, LA.) - The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association will be drawing for three $1,000 scholarships for university and college students. The event will be held at Louisiana Downs Champions Day, Saturday, August 2nd at Louisiana Downs in Bossier City.

Interested current college students need to sign in the 4th Floor Foyer at Louisiana Downs near the elevators from noon to post time for the second race. All applicants must present a current college ID. 

The drawing will take place after the second, fourth and sixth race and will be announced over the loudspeakers. All winners must be present after the sixth race in the Winners Circle to take a picture.

The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association gives a total of ten $1,000 scholarships out annually at major racing events. The scholarships are not tied to any specific industry. The Association hopes that it builds awareness for thoroughbred horses and awareness by creating a connection through the support of higher education.

Interest in accredited Louisiana bred horses is at an all time high. Louisiana racetracks annually generate over $40 million in additional purses with over $12 million reserved for Louisiana-breds and $7.2 million in Breeders Awards. Four Louisiana-bred "Championship" days for nearly $3.5 million are held annually at four different Louisiana racetracks and three restricted state-bred races are offered every day at all four Louisiana tracks. Owner bonuses (purse supplements) in Louisiana offer the most comprehensive incentive awards program in the entire country. The total owner and breeder award payout in 2006 was $20 million with more than $22.6 million being paid out in 2007.
