Officials at Evangeline Downs have announced that the start of turf racing at the facility will be delayed indefinitely

The Daily Racing Form reports that the turf course at Evangeline was scheduled to open May 24, but on its most recent overnight sheet, it stated that racing would be “off the turf course for an extended period.”

According to the DRF, the track hired a new turf consultant earlier this year and changed maintenance procedures. However, the turf has not grown as quickly as had been anticipated, which has left some bare spots on the course.

    I heard they let too many goats graze on it!Your meet ends in sept.and you can’t have it ready by the following May?I’ll bet any slot machine problems are fixed instantly!

  • The turf course issues pale in comparison to the problems within the racing office.

    Unfortunately, almost the entire course is a bare spot. The infield grass is beautiful. So what the hell happened to our turf course?
