    About Yavapai Downs Racetrack


    In 2011, the Yavapai County Farm and Agriculture Association filed for bankruptcy, and the Arizona track didn’t open on Memorial Day weekend for its usual summer racing session.


    This isn’t the first disruption Arizona horse lovers have faced. The original Yavapai Downs track was built in Prescott (the former capital of the Arizona Territory) in 1959, but had to close in 2000 because of space concerns – the track was right in the middle of town.


    The new and expanded Yavapai Downs facility opened the following year in nearby Prescott Valley. In addition to the one-mile dirt oval, Yavapai Downs featured a three-story grandstand, stables for 1,500 horses and a fairgrounds. The cost: $22 million.


    By the time 2011 rolled around, the owners were around $14 million in debt. The straw that broke the horse’s back was a change in assessment that re-classified Yavapai Downs as a commercial entity rather than a non-profit, upping the annual property taxes from $30,000 to $349,000.


    In October 2012, a bankruptcy court approved the tentative sale of Yavapai Downs for $5.5 million to Gary Miller, the president of the Arizona Horseman’s Benevolent & Protective Association. The United States Department of Agriculture has to sign off on the sale, as it holds $15 million in loans on the track from its original construction. The USDA previously turned down bids of $3 million and $3.5 million.


    Since Yavapai Downs typically runs from May through September, while Turf Paradise is only open in the winter, it’s expected the horses will be back at some point. Stay tuned.
