So here we are in 2023. So where are we going? The Nevada Standardbred Association, Inc. ("NVSA") is working with local and industry leaders to modify Horse Racing Regulations in Nevada to 1) define Harness Racing and the Standardbred horse in Nevada; 2) tweak existing regulations to help address gaps for Pari-mutuel Racing; and 3) establishing a financial support system to enable a horsemen's development fund for breeds, extension, equine education and the racing commission. This is mission critical and is expected to position the horse racing industry for success in Nevada.
Project One: Pahrump, Nevada is underway and with the assistance of key partners and industry faithful, will be successful. Development activities are occurring throughout 2023 and we expect to deliver updates later in 2023 when the first racing can occur. Our target racing season is October through Memorial Day and may be modified based on numerous factors including timing of racing 'up north'.
If wanting to become a part of the development, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
Who is NVSA?
Founded in 2018, today the Nevada Standardbred association works with educators and commissioners to get this party started. As we progress the movement, we also look for horsemen, caretakers, veterinarians and other professionals to play an important part of the journey.
