Known as the “fastest athletes on dirt,” thoroughbred horses will return to race at nearby Delta Downs Racetrack & Hotel on Friday, Oct. 16. The 2015-16 season runs through March 12, 2016, and features 86 racing dates with 32 stakes races whose purses total more than $4.6 million.

Racing days are Wednesday-Saturday with a start time of 5:40 p.m. As always, there’s no cost for admission, fans never pay for parking, and the horse track is kid friendly.
