EVANSTON, Wyo. – After several years without races, horses are running again at Wyoming Downs.

People from various states gathered Saturday to watch the races and gamble on their favorite animals, and those who attended said they are thrilled to see horse racing happening at the location again.

The racetrack's previous owner sold the track at auction some time ago, and now the new owners are reviving activities about five years after the last races were run at that location.

FOX 13 News’ Ashton Goodell was at Wyoming Downs Saturday, see the video above for her report. Races are expected to be held each weekend until August 10. For details about horse racing at Wyoming Downs, visit their website.
