Racing in the Au Revoir and the Idaho Cup Juvenile will be Scott Stevens, brother of Idaho racing legend Gary Stevens. With more than 30,000 starts of his own, Scott Stevens' horses have won $36 million.
The arrest came after election auditors in Nez Perce County and Asotin County in Washington discovered Christopher Billups, 62, of Lapwai, appeared to have voted at a polling site on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation after already mailing in a ballot to Washington.
