Tune in for Thursday’s card at the Fair Grounds.

A total of $138,094.66 will carry over into the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots’ Black Gold, a bet which pays out the entire pool only if there is a single winning ticket.

Five races made up the Black Gold for Saturday, January 6 which was kicked off in Race 6 and won by Classic Sopo, who paid $7.40 to win. The remaining four legs of the Black Gold were won by Ride a Comet ($8.00), Cool Ambition ($6.80), Triple Chelsea ($11.40) and Classic Brahms ($23.00).

Racing action resumes at the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots on Sunday, Jan. 7 at 2 p.m. ET. The Black Gold will begin in Race 5, which has a scheduled post time of 4:05 p.m. ET.

We will be posting our ticket here later today, along with our selections in every race, every day during this meet in New Orleans.
