About Race:
The Lecomte Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a Grade III Stakes race for three-year old horses willing to run 1 mile and 70 yards on the dirt. It has also been raced at 8 furlongs and 8.5 furlongs. It offers a purse of $175,000, and is normally run in mid-January. Trainers use it as a prep race for the Louisiana Derby, and potentially the Kentucky Derby.

The race is named in honor of one of the great Boston’s best sons, Lecomte. Lecomte’s dam was the brilliant Reel and he was half brother to Lexington.

In 2006, the race had to be canceled as a result of Hurricane Katrina.
