Saturday Race to Honor Billie Jo Courville

Evangeline Downs has named the first race on the Saturday, June 11th card in honor of Billie Jo Courville. Billie Jo had been a long time employee of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, serving breeders at the Evangeline Downs office from February 2004 until her recent death this past February. Her brightness of spirit and smiling face are missed by all who knew her.
The Billie Joe Courville Memorial Race is scheduled to be the first race on Saturday’s card with a post time of 5:50 p.m. There will also be a presentation in the winners circle.
