Oaklawn cancels Thursday's races

Oaklawn cancels Thursday's races

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn management made the decision to cancel Thursday’s nine-race card after more than five inches of rain left the track too saturated for racing.

“The safety of the horses and riders is always our first concern,” said Director of Racing David Longinotti. “The rain began about 3 p.m. Tuesday and has barely stopped since.”

Oaklawn remains open for gaming and simulcast racing. The game room will remain open until 3 a.m. 

Live racing is scheduled to resume Friday with a 1:30 p.m. first post. 

Bryant now offers online pet license renewal

Bryant now offers online pet license renewal

BRYANT, Ark. (KTHV) - Instead of going through the hassle of renewing your pet's license through mail or making a visit to your local veterinarian, Bryant citizens now have the option of doing it online.

Obtaining a license tag for your pet is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your pet finds his or her way home, should they ever become lost.  A pet license provides much more information than an identification tag for animal control officials if your pet is found, especially if located after normal business hours. 

"We are delighted to announce that the online pet licensing option is now available to our residents," said Tricia Power with Animal Control Director. "This portal will allow citizens to license their pets from home at any time, and they no longer have to come into the office on our schedule."
