Horse racing at Yavapai Downs in Prescott Valley, Arizona, could return by next year if a Phoenix-based retail company decides to go through with purchasing the shuttered track.

The company in question, JACOR Partners LLC, has been looking at the property for more than two years and is currently in the early stages of buying it, according to a report in Thursday's edition of the Prescott Daily Courier.
