The Pima County (Arizona) board of supervisors will meet on Tuesday to decide the longterm fate of Rillito Park Racetrack in Tucson.

The specific matter will be a four-year extension of the current lease with Rillito Racing Inc., which manages the sport and related business at the facility.

"If we don't extend the lease, I think it's the end of horse racing at Rillito," said supervisor Sharon Bronson, whose district includes the park.

Rillito Park will open its 2017 meet on February 11.
