Existing County Fairgrounds
There are three county fair tracks in Nevada located in Elko, Winnemucca and Ely. Elko is the most prominent location. All tracks are half mile tracks and have a chute. There are limited race dates at the locations, but can be leveraged as standardbred racing in Nevada grows.
Elko County is the location of the largest fair stakes racing in the State of Nevada. Presently at the Elko County Fair hundreds of horses and thousands of race fans turn out for six days of live Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing, competing for big-money purses and lots of potential winnings from on-site pari-mutuel betting. A goal of the NVSA is to utilize the site to promote the standardbred industry.
Winnemucca County hosts the Tri-County Fair over Labor Day weekend. A goal of the NVSA is to utilize the site to promote the standardbred industry.
White Panes,Ely was founded as a stagecoach station along the Pony Express. Currently the County conducts a Thoroughbred meet in August. A goal of the NVSA is to utilize the site to promote the standardbred industry.
