The Evangeline Downs Horse Barns are the support barns connected to a new first class race track in Opelousas, Louisiana. The 23 barns contain 1,000 horse stalls. Each barn contains hot-dip galvanized steel roof rafters, columns, and stall support components. HDG steel was selected for its low initial cost and because it requires little or no maintenance for decades.
The owner representative was also impressed with the ease of specifying HDG; it cut down the turnaround time because they didnï¾t waste time with paint selection and color. It was also important for the structure to be able to withstand the humid and acidic environment of the barns; HDG will resist corrosion from the humidity of Southern Louisiana and the wash downs of horse manure and urine longer than the other options. HDG provided the owner cost effective and durable support barns that will ensure the race track will remain first class for many years to come.
