You’re probably not alone if you’ve never heard of Desert Park. Sounds like it should be in Arizona or New Mexico, doesn’t it?

Osoyoos (pronounced “oh-SOY-youss”), British Columbia, just across the border from Oroville, Washington (and everybody knows where that is, right?) is home to Desert Park.

Racing is also scheduled for August 31, and then, of course, for many years to come.
