Supes discuss harness track

June 3, 2014

The Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors approved a joint proposal with Mississippi State University for an engineering assessment of the MSU Horse Park harness racing track during its regular meeting Monday morning.

Shafer and Associates will conduct the assessment, which is anticipated to cost $8,000, and will examine the measures and materials necessary for repairs to the track. The board agreed to split the cost of the assessment with the university. Gary Jackson, director of MSU Extension Service, said reopening the track to the public would bring extensive economic benefits to the area, adding that the Mississippi Trotting Association has already expressed a desire to hold monthly races which could bring in not only local residents but also racers from out of state.
