After one false start, they are off to the races at Kin Race Track.

The Okanagan Equestrian Society has confirmed a successful entry day for the races scheduled for today.

“After having to cancel the races scheduled for the previous weekend due to a shortage of race horses, we have brought in horses from across B.C., Alberta and the northwestern states for this weekend’s races,” said Ed Woolley, society president.

“There will be a number of locally owned horses as well competing for the purses on the first race date of 2012.”

Gates open at noon today and the parade to post for the first scheduled race is 1 p.m.

Races are also scheduled for July 29 and Aug. 5 at the 43rd Avenue track.
