Preview: Wiener dog racing at Fair Grounds Race Course 

The dachshunds are on the track

Dachshunds aren't prone to running in straight lines, so it helps to have their owners call them to the finish line, even for a race that's only 30 yards long. With a top purse of $500 at stake, 48 local purebred dachshunds compete in the Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots' annual Wiener Dog Racing. There are heats between horse races, with Double M Feed gift bags for top finishers, and a final championship run. Admission is $5 for dog races, clubhouse admission is $10.
