Yavapai Downs took another important step toward bringing summertime horse racing back to Arizona as the Arizona Racing Commission unanimously approved a three-year temporary permit for the track’s new ownership group
Plans call for live racing to begin at Yavapai Downs in 2019, running from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Simulcast wagering could begin as early as July 1 this year to build purses for the live season, with the first Off Track Betting facility to be at the racetrack site in Prescott Valley.
On April 10, 2018, Fain Land and Cattle launched a fundraising effort to begin dealing with the issue of homelessness in the region. The organization is donating a market steer for raffle. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help homeless families and individuals in the community. There will be three winners and the drawing will take place the evening of May 12, 2018, during Prescott Valley Days’ Ranch to Table event.
To date, Fain Land and Cattle have already raised $8,500 through corporate donations from The Jewish Community Foundation, Dorn Homes and Universal Homes at Granville. Corporate donations are still being accepted as individual donations via raffle ticket purchases will continue through May 11, 2018.
The weekend will feature bikes, quads and UTVS of all ages and skill levels.
The weekend will be a great event for spectators. Registration will start Friday, May 25, outside the Event Center. Races will be all day May 26-27 with tickets sold at the gate.
Race or just come to watch all the entertainment. It will be a weekend full of fun for everyone!

Northern Arizona University’s role in Arizona extends to well before that first celebration of statehood, and since 1899, we have proudly served Arizonans. As the state’s population has grown, our connection to every corner of Arizona has expanded with it. Through our campuses in Prescott Valley, Phoenix and Yuma, we connect to our neighbors with degree options that meet the economic demands of the region – so our students graduate from NAU not just with a higher education, but with skills and training to pursue a career where they want to live. Our online programs also meet our Lumberjacks where and when they need us, so they can earn their degree even while they balance work and family obligations. And of course, our Flagstaff Mountain Campus continues to carry on the student-focused college experience our founders envisioned.
