Tampa Bay Downs is the only Thoroughbred race track on the West Coast of Florida, and is known as one of America’s oldest, most well-maintained racetracks. This just happens to be in my back door where I have had the privilege of hosting several events there with the Precious, Margo Flynn as well having their support via sponsorship in other events. Please be sure to visit them Annually from December 1st through May 4th for LIVE Racing and Fun Times, heck you can enjoy simulcast all year long!
Tampa Bay Downs first opened its doors in 1926 under the name of Tampa Downs, and has since had a long and has been continually improving by adding its 7/8th mile grass track, complete with a ¼ mile chute! In 1998, Tampa Bay Downs has become one of the most popular turf courses in North America. The millennium brought even more amenities to Tampa Bay Downs, including the Downs Golf Practice Facility, which allows patrons to practice their swing while viewing and wagering on simulcast racing; both are open 7 days a week.
