Home of the Louisiana Derby

Lukas Bringing His 'Twos-Turning-Threes' to New Orleans

Media handling option: 

Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas won the Louisiana Derby and Kentucky Derby in 1996 with Grindstone, who became the only horse since Black Gold in 1924 to accomplish that feat. If there’s another Grindstone in the barn this winter, Fair Grounds fans can look forward to the possibility of seeing that horse develop over multiple races in New Orleans.
