At today’s Illinois Racing Board meeting the decision on 2022 racing dates was finalized. We extended our racing opportunities from 63 days in 2021 to 75 days next year. Plus, not in the IRB dates order but agreed to, will be four days of racing over two weeks in June at the Springfield State Fairgrounds and another six days over three weeks at the end of September. Those days of racing at Springfield will not be pari-mutual so approval from the IRB was not essential. That will bring our total of racing days to 85 for next year. Click here for the full schedule.
