June reopening of Prescott horse track in jeopardy


PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - The new owner of Yavapai Downs says it'll be difficult for the horse race track in Prescott in June as he'd hoped under his latest timetable.

According to the Daily Courier, track owner Gary Miller says his financing arrangements have changed and that he's trying to find partners.

The track's former owners closed it in May 2011 due to financial troubles, and Miller bought it this year.

He says he's already invested more than $1 million of his own money on the track, which needed extensive work.

Miller has already delayed the planning reopening of the track at least once.

Miller says he's still hoping to open the track for a short season in August.
