Horse racing, which would have been legal in Utah if Initiative A had been approved
Utah Initiative A was on the November 4, 1958 statewide ballot in Utah as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated.

It was a citizen-initiated measure that would have permitted pari-mutuel wagering at horse races and created a state horse-racing commission.

Initiative A in 1958 was the second citizen initiative to qualify for the ballot in Utah.

Horse racing had been legal in Utah through the 1920s, and was a popular attraction at sites such as the Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, Utah. However, the Utah State Legislature voted to make horse-racing illegal in the 1930s.
