The North Dakota Horse Park will be hosting three weekends of horse racing beginning next Saturday.
And the park’s general manager is expecting a good season.
For the first time in years, horse races will be held on two Friday nights, July 21st and 28th.
Park general manager Mike Schmitz said he thinks the horse racing industry is alive and well in North Dakota.
"As an industry, we're putting more into te state's coffers than our appropriations," Schmitz said in an interview.
Schmitz also said NDSU has just finished an impact study on horse racing.
