Monday, September 21, 2009 - 3:18pm

Horses weren't the only ones racing this weekend at the Downs.

"Humble Bob" Shouldt took home the prize in the Louisiana Downs Grits Eating Championship on Saturday.

He downed almost 19 lbs. of grits in 10 minutes.

He said it may take him a little while to recover, but not long enough to miss a meal.

"I'm sure at some point tomorrow I'll be fine, the grits I'm able to process pretty quick," Shouldt said. "But I do have some people coming over for dinner tomorrow night so, I'm going to be eating that. I'm definitely going to be eating dinner tomorrow night, I'm not going to miss that."

Shouldt took home $2,000 in prize money, just one day after he won the World Burrito Eating Championship in Albuquerque.
