Horses put out to pasture in Kingman

Annual races cancelled for now

The economy has claimed another victim. This time, it's what would have been the 44th Annual Hualapai Downs horse racing at the Mohave County Fairgrounds.Fairgrounds manager Errol Pherigo said the event, which normally runs for two consecutive weekends in the spring, was scaled back to just one weekend last year because of reduced funding and lost $1,700, whereas the previous 42 years the races had turned a profit.
