This horse -- Guy on the Go -- is ready for racing season at Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, which begins October 30.

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Several horses reported to the stalls for the upcoming season of live horse racing at Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course.

Live racing begins Friday, October 30 and runs through April 23.

Racing is open to anyone, but those under 18 must be in the presence of an adult. Racing can be seen outside or from one of the 1,000 indoor seats.

Hollywood Gaming’s vice president of Racing Operations said interest is growing after last season’s success.

“The response for stalls this year was overwhelming,” he said. “We had over 2,000 requests for stalls, with only the ability to house 988 horses. So, definitely, we’re a very attractive option, and in this part of the country, since we’ll be the only track racing in the northeast Ohio marketplace.”
