You bet the Turf Club will have horse racing at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, for now.

Stanislaus County Fair officials announced that the Turf Club will be rented to Northern California Off Track, Inc. to run the satellite horse racing facility in Turlock.

California of Horse Racing and Northern California Off-Track Wagering Inc. found a way to extend the Turf Club’s wagering facility by assuming daily operations.

“We are excited to find a way to continue the operations of the Turf Club for another few weeks and are committed to finding a way to keep horse wagering in Turlock on a permanent basis,” said Matt Cranford, chief operating officer for the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds.

Since its roots were established well before the turn of the century, horse racing and fairs have gone hand in hand over the years.

Horse racing at California’s county and district fairs is rich in tradition and history. Since the legalization of pari-mutual wagering in 1933, fair racing has gone through many changes and evolved into what we know it to be today.
