The details of the program: The Fair Grounds Racing Club will initially acquire two racehorses from Spendthrift Farm for the 2016-2017 racing season. The horses will be trained by New Orleans based trainer Al Stall, Jr. Updates will be posted on Facebook weekly and via email so you can follow the racehorses. While your Club membership annual dues are only $500, monthly financials will be shared with the group to provide a transparent and behind-the-scenes look into the real costs of owning a racehorse. All aspects of racehorse ownership will be explained.
