Illinois county fairs trying to move to Springfield
« Return to News
Due to the COVID-19 situation and the number of county fairs canceling, we are going to make an attempt to conduct these races on the mile track at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
As a result, I have extended the last day to supplement a horse to the County Fairs to June 1. It is $800 per horse to supplement them.
If you intend to supplement a horse or horses please call me at 217.685.0954 before June 1 and give me the following information: Name of the horse, sex, age and gait that you intend to supplement in.
In the event we are not able to race the County Fair races in Springfield you will be refunded your money.--by Tim Norman, Bureau Chief, County Fairs and Horseracing, Illinois Department of Agriculture
