It is Mardi Gras 2018, and let them party continue. A number of parades are scheduled for New Orleans today, but there is one that will not take place:

The post parade at the Fair Grounds.

In honor of the time-honored tradition of all the festivities, the Fair Grounds will pay their respects to the history of the city and all of its other activities by not conducting live racing today.

So, we will see you again on Thursday, Feb. 8.  Until then, may the horse be with you.
