    As usual, great article, Don!! 🤓
    We loved going to the old EvD back in the dayŚwe always sat in the grandstands, and since we weren't "rabid" bettors, it was relatively cheap entertainment!! I even remember families going and the kids watching the races from outside the fences while the parents went inside.

    Good read, Don.

    The new track is nice, but it does not have the character of the old one. I grew up with the Bush tracks, and, as young kids, when we weren't hustling the pool tables, we were taking the old people's money on the races. By the time we got to high school, we started going to Evangeline almost every weekend. If we wore boots and a hat, no questions asked. Fun times.
