ALEXANDRIA, LA—MARCH 1, 2020—Breeding and racing are certainly top priorities for the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association (LQHBA), but one very important goal of the association is to promote education for Louisiana youth.

Since 2001, the LQHBA scholarship program has granted over $600,000 for students attending a higher education institution.

In the continuing tradition of combining recognition of youth on big race days, two students will be awarded $2,000 scholarships on Mardi Gras Futurity and Derby Day, March 14 at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs.

Registration begins at 11:00 am and students MUST BE PRESENT when the drawings take place after the fourth race of the afternoon card.
