Colonel E.R. Bradley Handicap
The Colonel E.R. Bradley Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, Louisiana at the beginning of the year. A Grade III stakes race for four-year-olds and up, it's set at a distance of 1 and 1/16th of a mile on the turf and offers a purse of $100,000.
The Col. E.R. Bradley is named for Edward R. Bradley, the founder of Idle Hour Stock Farm. Bradley and Idle Hour established first class breeding in his area through his stallion Black Toney and one of America's preeminent blue hen mares, La Troienne.
This race was one of the many not run in 2006 due to Hurricane Katrina.
