The weather delayed opening day at Fonner Park Friday, but Saturday live horse racing kicked off.
The 2009 live horse racing season started with a 1:30p.m. post time.
Fans and horseman said they didn't mind waiting one more day.
"I would rather have it canceled than a horse get hurt. In fact, [Saturday] I was nervous about it because it's so muddy," said Maryln Wells, co-owner of "Don't Blow Smoke."
Live racing at Fonner Park lasts through the first week of May.
