Radio to cover local horse races

ESPN Radio (1340 AM) will again host "live" shows in downtown Ferndale following the horse races at this year's Humboldt County Fair.

Hosted by J.B. Mathers, Tag Wotherspoon and Humboldt race announcer Frank Mirahmadi, the shows will include race results, interviews with racing personalities and in-depth handicaps on the next day's race programs.

The shows, slated to start approximately 30 minutes after the last Ferndale race, will take place in front of the Ivanhoe Restaurant in downtown Ferndale -- same location as last year -- and fans are invited to attend.
