And they're off

Harrah's Louisiana Downs announced the schedule for its quarter horse meet this winter.

Yeah, I know, you only care about thoroughbred racing.

But that is going to be the trick for the folks out at the Downs - educating fans about quarter horse racing. Thoroughbred racing has a 33-2 start on quarter horse racing at the Downs. That is 33 years of thoroughbred racing compared to what will be the second year of quarter horse racing at the Downs.

The folks at the Downs are hoping to make quarter horse racing more than just an interlude until the thoroughbred season. If they are patient, then they might succeed.
