It’s almost that time of year again! Not only do we have the holidays to look forward to, but we also have the racetrack. In New Orleans, it’s safe to say that everyone has at least one fond memory of going to the track either to bet or just to watch. At Lamarque Ford, we always look forward to the races and the nights of family fun they entail. Most people don’t think of the track as a family outing, but with the exotic racing at Starlight Racing it is a really fun event.
To start off the season, there will be Ostrich, Camel and Mascot racing in addition to the thoroughbred racing later in the night. These exotic races are an exciting way to start the night out, especially for guests with kids.
Going to the New Orleans Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots is being a part of history. It is the third oldest racetrack in the country and has been in operation since 1872. Like much of New Orleans, the track is a place where generation after generation has enjoyed spending their time. It’s a New Orleans tradition to bet on the slots and relax with loved ones.
The season is only just beginning. Starlight and exotic racing starts November 22nd, but the racing season runs through March. The Lamarque Ford family will be enjoying the beginning of the season and looks forward to seeing everyone else out at the track!by
