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.
