If memory serves it is a mile track, and I'm positive it didn't have a turf course.

1 mile, no turf....never understood the deal when it closed unless it was just some slot machine gamble that never paid off.

Kentucky Downs owner part of the group buying it so that has to be a good thing I'd think.

this is the kind of track I would like to go to. I went to a track in Prescott when I was a kid, bull ring and the jockeys were sitting on top of the tote board on lawn chairs between races -the good ole' days

I doubt it. The tribes pretty much control gambling in Arizona and I suspect they wouldn't let TuP install gumball machines.

Indians run Arizona from a gambling perspective, that will only happen should NJ win that court case and they see more money ditching the current cash cow.

I've got a friend who lives nearby. He's a retired Yavapai County sheriff's deputy. Maybe he'll get a job there working security - and in 2010 Yavapai Downs observed a unique purse distribution format: 55-X-X-X-X-1 each, the X's being variable based on the size of the field.

Yep, they used to run every aviation of $1,500 claiming. The horses had to run every week to make enough money to eat.
