Crazy 8s on Louisiana Legends Night at Evangeline Downs

This 4th of July, Evangeline Downs is set to host the Louisiana Legends Festival. The 12 race card features 8 Louisiana-bred stakes races, with purses totaling $775,000.

The main event on this exciting night of racing is the $125,000 Louisiana Legends Classic, which is headlined by the 5/2 morning line favorite, Stormdriver. He will look to improve off his 2nd place finish in the Evangeline Mile in June in this 1 1/16 mile test, which has drawn seven horses.

To add some value to the night of Louisiana-bred racing action, TwinSpires is giving away 888,888 TSC Elite Points to the players who can record at least $88 in gross winnings by placing $8 Win, Place or Show wagers on the eight Louisiana Legends races.
