The racing world's focus turned to New Orleans on March 29, as some of the best 3-year-olds in the country battled it out on the track in the Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds. The race has a rich 121-year history, but the city itself dates to 1718, when it was founded by the French.

New Orleans' original neighborhood, the French Quarter, has both French and Spanish influences and retains much of its historical charm today. Eclipse Sportswire captured images of the city and the great day of racing at Fair Grounds in this amazing slideshow.
