Track Info

Main Track
The Main Track is a one mile oval made up of sand and loam composition and is rated one of the best surfaces in the nation for both training and racing. The surface is equal to none in terms of drainage and cushion. The Track is 75’ wide and the length of the stretch is 976’. The track supports two chutes for seven furlong races and three-eighths events. Starting Gate Schooling is available on race days between 7:30am and 10:00am.

The Turf Course was completed in 1998 and is seven-eighths of a mile in circumference with an additional quarter mile chute. The width of the Turf Course is 80’ and is a Tifton #419 Bermuda Turf and supports rails settings of 0’, 12’ and 22’.

Paddock and Walking Arena
