Zebra and Camel Racing Heading to Delta Downs in Vinton on Saturday, June 3
If you didn't get your fix of zebra and camel racing a few weeks ago at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas, then you have another chance.
Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel will be bringing back an evening of exotic animal racing as they'll be hosting "Stripes & Speed Humps" on Saturday, June 3, 2023.
Just like the night at Evangeline Downs, this evening of racing will feature a regular slate of horse racing (quarter horse) with zebra and camel racing interspersed.
Racing will kick off early with a special post time of 5:00 pm. You'll be able to watch the zebras and camels race to the finish line after Race 2 and again after Race 4.
How much does it cost to attend?
Nothing. Yep, this family-friendly event is free to all and will be a unique day at the races.
