Les Bois Wraps First Full Racing Season in Four Years, More Than $2 Million in Payouts

Posted By on Sat, Aug 18, 2012 at 12:00 PM

The beginning of the Western Idaho Fair also means the end of the 2012 season at Les Bois Park, the first full horse racing season in four years and the first under new, all local ownership.

"It's a sure bet," Les Bois General Manager Kerry Lawson told BW in April as he was settling in to his new position. "Everybody needs to know that we're going to be here a long time, and we're going to supply a great product."

The 2012 36-day race season racked up a $2.5 million parimutuel handle, paying out an average of nearly $56,000 per race day.

The spring-summer season was most popular on Wednesday nights, with an average attendance of approximately 3,800.
