The Arizona Racing Commission on Tuesday approved by a unanimous 4-0 vote Turf Paradise’s request for a race meet in 2024.
The track announced that it will host a 57-day live meet, running from Monday, Jan. 29 through Saturday, May 4.
“I decided to postpone my retirement because of the many stakeholders here in Arizona that want racing to continue,” track owner Jerry Simms shared in a press release.
A signed contract between Turf and the Arizona Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association listed a four-day-a-week live schedule, Monday through Thursday. Horses will be allowed into the stable area Monday, Dec. 18 with training beginning Tuesday, Dec. 26.
Turf Paradise is located at 1501 W. Bell Road, in Phoenix.
