    About Delta Downs Racetrack


    One million dollars. That’s become the benchmark for major purses in American thoroughbred racing, and horse enthusiasts were very happy to see Delta Downs rejoin the Million Dollar Club in 2010.


    It’s been quite a ride. The Delta Downs Racetrack opened in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana in 1973 with a focus on Quarter Horses; founder Lee Berwick was also the president of the American Quarter Horse Association. Thoroughbreds would gain a more prominent role over the years – and so would slot machines.


    Boyd Gaming took over operations in the 1990s after new gambling legislation was introduced, investing heavily in turning the facility into a racino and hotel complex. The revenues allowed Boyd Gaming to create the Delta Jackpot Stakes (8.5 furlongs, 2-year-olds) in 2002, and to bump the purse up to $1 million the following year. That makes the Delta Jackpot the second-richest race in America for 2-year-olds behind the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.


    However, then the recession hit. The purse was lowered to $750,000 in 2008, but two years later, the $1-million prize was restored. This is one of two Grade 3 stakes run every year at Delta Downs; the other is the $500,000 Princess Stakes for 2-year-old fillies. Both events are held at the start of the thoroughbred racing season in November, and are run on Delta’s six-furlong dirt track (sand and clay, limestone base). Quarter Horses begin their season in April. You’ll be able to see both kinds of horses – along with draft and miniature horses – in the Delta pastures, which are visible from the entrance.
