Yavapai Downs purchased by JACOR Partners

Yavapai Downs has been purchased by real estate company JACOR Partners for $3.22 million. Depending on how long it takes to receive a permit from the Arizona Racing Commission and the amount of work needed on the property, the track could open in 2018. The return of live racing to the facility would more likely be with the 2019 racing season, which runs Memorial Day through Labor Day.
