The 43rd annual Hualapai Downs horse racing starts up with the gates opening at 11 a.m. Saturday and post time at 1 p.m. Due to a financial downturn, racing will be held only one weekend this year rather than the normal two.

KINGMAN - It's billed as the "Fastest Fun on Four Feet" and the 43rd annual running of Hualapai Downs will take off Saturday and Sunday at the Mohave County Fairgrounds. Grant money from the Arizona Horse Racing Association is down 30 percent this year, and race organizers had to curtail the two-weekend series and pare it down to only one.
