New Vocations Day at the Races at Fair Grounds Postponed

Fair Grounds | Hodges

Due to severe storms, high winds, power outages and flight cancelations in Kentucky, Saturday's scheduled “New Vocations Day at the Races” event at Fair Grounds has been postponed and rescheduled for Thursday, Mar. 23. Despite their efforts, Mother Nature thwarted travel plans to New Orleans from Kentucky on Friday and early Saturday morning for both retired jockey and racehorse advocate Rosie Napravnik and New Vocations' executive director Anna Ford, and the decision was made to postpone the event.

“We are disappointed that we had to postpone the event, but happy that we could reschedule it,” said Fair Grounds' senior director of racing Jason Boulet. “Despite the severe weather in Kentucky, Rosie and Anna made every effort to follow through with their travel plans to New Orleans, but Mother Nature had other ideas. We are looking forward to New Vocations Day at the Races on Mar. 23. It will be a welcome addition to Louisiana Derby week.”
