That first meet was short: just 45 days, beginning in September wrapping up by December. But it was a great start for the new, supremely fan-friendly facility that features a 1,500 seat grandstand and 20,000 sq. ft. patio deck. Horsemen were treated to a state-of-the-art, 15-race paddock.
We'll have more on opening day at Harrah's throughout the year, including pictures and news reports from opening day. Stay tuned.
