The horses are running again.
The 2012 Evangeline Downs Thoroughbred racing season runs through September.
The Opelousas based track was built in 2003 as a casino, live horse racing facility and hotel just off I-49.
People who work there tell us it's fun for the entire family.
"Years ago it was family friendly and we kind of got away from that and we're trying to get back to that image again. We want everybody to come out here, we want you to bring your kids out, we want them to come see the ponies running out there, to spend some time with your family here at the races and enjoy yourself."
Races run Wednesday through Sunday.
