Cal Expo will host three weeks of thoroughbred racing at the 2015 State Fair after new date allocations were approved by the California Horse Racing Board.
The 2015 State Fair meet will run July 9-26.
“It is the biggest fair in the state,” said Chris Korby, executive director of the California Authority of Racing Fairs, which supported the change. “The board needs to take racing to where the people are.”
This summer, the State Fair will host thoroughbred racing from July 10-20.
