Annual Crawfish Boil Raises Thousands for Horse Rescue


The Fair Grounds hosted an annual Crawfish Boil that raises thousands for Horse Rescue (and other racing-related charities).  The funds are typically dispersed evenly between Remember Me Rescue, a nonprofit founded by trainer-assistant trainer duo Dallas and Donna Keen to assist retired racehorses, and the Louisiana Horse Rescue Association, an industry initiative that places retired racehorses at caring farms.
