Louisiana Downs is considered to be a showcase for horses from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. Thoroughbred meet takes place from early May through October. A quarter horse meet is held from January through March.

Louisiana Downs is home of the Super Derby, a 1-1/4 mile race, which is one of the premiere races for 3 year olds in North America and has been since its first running in 1980.

In its 24 runnings, the Super Derby has attracted four Kentucky Derby winners, four Preakness Stakes winners, five Belmont Stakes winners and seven Travers Stakes winners. Six previous Super Derby entrants have won the prestigious Breeders' Cup Classic and three Super Derby winners, Tiznow, Sunday Silence and Alysheba have been voted the Eclipse Award as Horse of the Year, the industry's highest award.
