4th of July Coconino County Horse Races

Flagstaff July 08, 2009

Each 4th of July weekend, the Arizona horse racing circuit makes the trip from Prescott Downs to Fort Tuthill Downs in Flagstaff for two days of racing excitement. Events include thoroughbred and quarter horse racing, with distances varying from 350-yard sprints to grueling mile-long endurance races. Since we were staying at the Camp Tuthill Campgrounds, we made the short trip to the track and enjoyed an afternoon of horse racing.  There is talk that the races may not come back next year.  If they do, it will be worth your trip.
