The Evangeline Derby was won by Touch's Cocaine Blues for handler Randy Anderson with a big ground race and one find. Second was Quickmarksman's Excalibur for handler Mike Hester with one find and third was World Class Moonshiner for handler Randy Anderson with one find.

Judges for the Cajun Classic were Kentuckians Dr. Kristine and Tom Hammons; for the Derby, local sportsmen Chris Sellers and Chris Weatherly.
