Police Shut Down Illegal Horse Racing Track On Side Of Arizona Highway

Pantoji, a little dirt track by the highway 60 miles south of Phoenix, has been holding two- and three-horse races for years, with admission at $10 a head. It wasn't licensed, it wasn't monitored, and it violated just about every gambling statute on the books. And now it's closed, after authorities raided the track over the weekend. The horses were all found to be in good conditioning, meaning even Pantoji is less shady than thoroughbred racing these days. [AZCentral]
