Purses At Fair Grounds To Get 15 Percent Across The Board Boost

Inspired by strong handle during the first five weeks of the 150th racing season, Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots in New Orleans, La., has announced a 15 percent purse increase across the board.

“We’re extremely excited to announce a 15 percent increase to our daily purse structure,” Fair Grounds’ racing secretary Scott Jones said. “Based on the strong early handle returns and continued support from our owners and horsemen, we are in a position to raise purses.”

The 15 percent across the board purse increase will go in effect immediately, beginning with the entries for the Thursday, Jan. 13 card, which will be drawn on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022. Maiden special weight races will now be worth $52,000. The purse increase includes both open races and Louisiana-bred races.
