NEW ORLEANS FAIR GROUNDS MEMORIES is a new
documentary that will chronicle one of America’s most
historic race tracks. Produced and narrated by Peggy
Scott Laborde, the program will premiere on WYES-TV on
Wednesday, November 19 at 7 pm, 8:30 pm and 10 pm.
Before it became officially known at the Fair Grounds in
1872, it was used not only as an early race track but also for
exhibitions, boxing and baseball games. During the Civil and
Spanish-American Wars the site was used as a campground.
Union Gen. George Armstrong Custer raced horses there,
and one of the more notable visitors through the years was
President Ulysses S. Grant.
Among the many celebrated horses that will be
remembered in the one-hour program is Risen Star, a
Louisiana thoroughbred that won the 1988 Louisiana Derby
and went on to capture the Preakness and Belmont Stakes.
NEW ORLEANS FAIR GROUNDS MEMORIES will focus on
some of the personalities associated with the more recent

history of the track, including Allen “Blackcat” Lacombe. Also featured will
be some of the owners, trainers and jockeys that have contributed to the
track’s rich history. Joe W. Brown and his wife, Dororthy Dorsett Brown, had
a stable of over forty horses at the Fair Grounds. After Mr. Brown’s death,
Mrs. Brown continued breeding and running her horses locally and at tracks
around the United States for over twenty years.
With a season that opens officially around Thanksgiving and ends close to
Easter, going to the Fair Grounds has been a tradition for many local families.
During such hallmark days as Thanksgiving and the Louisiana Derby, many
female track patrons wear hats.
The Fair Grounds has withstood hurricanes, fire and bankruptcy in its
history. It is currently owned by Churchill Downs Incorporated.
Versatility of the land is evidenced by its annual conversion from nationally
recognized race track to a setting for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage
Festival, considered to be one of the largest music festivals in the world.
Editor is Larry Roussarie. Associate producers are Ashli Richard and
Kelsi Schreiber. Photographers are Paul Combel and Lenny Delbert.
Musical score composed by Kevin George.

HITMAKERS is an up-close look at the
music industry’s resilience in the digital age,
from the perspective of groundbreaking
artists, music label mavericks and gamechanging managers. These crucial players
have shaped the music business over the
past 100 years, changing pop culture in
the process. Today’s artists challenge the
paradigm further, taking control of their
careers and sometimes shucking the system
altogether to record and release music on
their own. Record labels large and small also
have found they must innovate to thrive.
Features interviews and performances from
Melissa Etheridge, The Roots’ Questlove
