Louisiana Derby 2013: Welcome to the Big Easy

USA TODAY Sports

A great week of racing is on tap at the Fair Grounds, concluding with the Louisiana Derby on Saturday, March 30.

Greetings from New Orleans!

The weather is quite nice and comfortable this week and looking good for Saturday's 100th Louisiana Derby.

I'm heading out to the Fair Grounds this morning for the post positions draw (which you can follow on Twitter - @pressthepace); I'll have a re-cap of the Louisiana Derby and Florida Derby draws later on this afternoon/early evening.
