Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Horse racing fans in the Red River Valley got a big treat tonight as a new season of racing at the North Dakota Horse Park got

underway.

This year the track expanded its schedule adding racing on Friday.

The big races come this weekend with the 10 thousand dollar North Dakota Derby and Futurity races and for the fans that packed the place tonight, it's just a nice way to spend a night.

Michael Christenson- Fargo: "Just the excitement of the races and just having the chance to bet a few dollars and maybe a chance to win maybe 10-15 dollars is still exciting even though it's not much money. Gambling I guess is the allure the little bit the fact that when you can win some money it's fun."

Racing gets underway Saturday and Sunday at 1.
