NE Racing Commission approves April days for Fonner Park

“The two-week trial basis went well enough,’’ Fonner CEO Chris Kotulak said. “It hasn’t been a raging success but it’s been greater than our expectations.’’

Fonner Park will continue to race Mondays through Wednesdays for the remainder of its Thoroughbred race meet.

State racing commission approves April days for Fonner ParkThe track’s request to shift its race days throughout April was approved Friday in a one-hour Nebraska Racing Commission conference call. The request received unanimous approval from the five-member board.

The commission had granted Fonner’s request two weeks ago to move its dates from Friday-Sunday to Monday-Wednesday on a trial basis. That request was made in part because Fonner has little racing competition nationwide early in the week.

Because of strong simulcasting mutuel handles, track officials wanted to keep those days.
