Horse Racing at California’s county and district fairs is rich in tradition and history. With its roots established long before the turn of the century, horse racing and fairs have been synonymous over the years. Since the legalization of pari-mutual wagering in 1933, fair racing has gone through many changes and evolved into what we know it to be today.
The tradition continues at the Stanislaus County Fair at the Turlock Turf Club!
