Fargo could have 9 days of horse racing
FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- The North Dakota Horse Park in Fargo could have up to nine days of horse racing next year.
State Racing Director Winston Satran tells the Forum newspaper that the state Racing Commission has granted nine days of racing to the track, but will not award funding until a February meeting.
Wes Heinert, president of Horse Race North Dakota, says the organization can determine how many days to hold racing after it finds out how much funding it will get.
The track in Fargo hosted two weekends of racing last summer after a two-year shutdown due to financial problems.
The racing commission also has awarded North Dakota's other horse-racing track, Chippewa Downs in Belcourt, nine race days for next year.
