$2 million facelift continues at horse track; Simulcasting starting in July

After nearly a decade of silence, Yavapai Downs is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar facelift.

And with a new look comes a new name.

The Prescott Valley horse track will reopen as Arizona Downs, J&J Equine Enterprises LLC officially announced Wednesday afternoon.

Longtime racing executive Corey Johnson thanked the Herbeveaux family for allowing J&J Equine to use the name Arizona Downs, which was the name of the former racetrack in Phoenix that opened in 1951 at one site and later ran its annual race meetings by leasing Turf Paradise before closing operations in 1985.
