COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – Fairmount Park Racetrack will open for the 2020 racing season on Tuesday and Tim Ezell is posing with the ponies.
Yes indeed! He’s checking out the scene at Fairmount Park where they will be open on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to bring fans a record 60 days of racing. Gates will open at 11:00 a.m.
