Horse Racing Returning to Wyoming

Live horse racing is returning to Wyoming this summer. The state Pari-Mutuel Commission has approved a plan to present four days of live racing at the Sweetwater County events complex in Rock Springs.

The live race dates are August 20 and 21, and September 3 and 4.

The company, called Wyoming Horse Racing, will also be allowed to run off track betting in several cities including Casper, Cheyenne and Riverton.  Those facilities can operate Wednesdays through Mondays until the end of the year.
