They're At the Post! Les Bois Opens First Season in 3 Years

Posted By on Sat, Jul 2, 2011 at 11:53 AM

Today is the day that Idaho horse racing enthusiasts have been looking forward to for three years: the return of thoroughbred racing to Les Bois Park.

Les Bois Park

The doors open this afternoon at 4:40, and the first post time is set for 5:30 at Les Bois, a part of the Expo Idaho fairgrounds in Garden City. Admission is $2. A special racing card is also set for Monday, July 4. Then, an abbreviated season of racing begins with a full card scheduled for Wednesdays and Saturdays through mid-August.

Approximately 150 employees have been hired by Les Bois' new lease holder, Treasure Valley Racing, to operate live and simulcast racing. TVR's lease agreement guarantees live races for the next five years.
