Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Horse racing is taking off once again in Fargo. The State Racing Commission is allowing the city to host two weekends of racing this summer.

The races are scheduled for July 14 and 15 and July 21 and 22. The commission approved the second weekend after Horse Race North Dakota got a financial backer.

Integrated Betting Network agreed to pay 36-thousand dollars in operational costs for the event. Horse Race North Dakota President Wes Heinert says the second weekend will allow them to build up excitement and bring in more horses.
