Emerald Downs announced its 75-day live racing season, beginning April 19 and closing Sept. 29.

The 2013 dates were approved Friday at the Washington Horse Racing Commission meeting.

Live racing will be every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with holiday racing on May 27, July 3 and 4 and Sept. 2. The annual Fireworks Spectacular follows the races on Wednesday, July 3. Post times are 6:45 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. weekends and holidays.

The track has six fewer racing dates than last year as it eliminated Thursday racing, with the exception of July 4.

The track was open on six Thursdays last summer.

The 78th running of the Grade III Longacres Mile, featuring many of the nation's finest middle-distance horses, is set for Aug. 18. The complete stakes schedule will be announced later this month.

The stable area opened last week, allowing horses more than 10 weeks to prepare for the season.

The meeting marks the 18th season of live racing at Emerald Downs.
