Have there been any updates on the sale, or whether there will be racing in Northern Arizona? Prescott was a great place to be in the summer, and its a real shame there has been no racing there...

Lat I read they weren't expecting any racing this summer, after the Feds vetoed the auction price, and I still don't think that's been resolved. The horsemen must not think so either, as I saw a ton of TuP horses at Emerald and Hastings.

Ah yes, racing in the "cool pines."
Facility reminded me of an abandoned Alaskan gold mine, and the distance from the finish line to the clubhouse turn was frightening. especially in the quarter horse races.
Still, hard to find a better place to spend Labor Day!

Thus resulting in the "Tanya Laib Memorial Dent" in the outside fence of the clubhouse turn, where she and her mount had failed to negotiate that turn.

And it was ALWAYS raining and muddy for Labor Day weekend, resulting in some eventful racing on that slick surface and the tight turns. However, that did not affect the apres' race activities on Whiskey Row.

I agree it wasnt the nicest track in the world, however, it is sickening when any track closes.
