USA Race Courses

Thoroughbred horse racing in America takes place at a variety of race tracks around the country. We have decided to compile a list of the most famous USA race courses, providing all the information that horse race players need.

We feature the history of the race track, note the most famous races run at each course, and list the relevant contact info to help you get there or get in touch with race course staff. Whether you want to find out more about the Triple Crown tracks: Churchill Downs, Pimlico, and Belmont Park or need to know about the fantastic racing on the West Coast at venues like Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, or Del Mar then this is the page for you.

If you want to find out more about courses around the world then be sure to check out our international race track page, our page devoted to the top courses in the UK, and an exclusive page that caters to Australian horse racing courses.

We will add more race tracks over time, hopefully touching on every major horse racing centre in America, spanning the oldest and most venerable tracks like Saratoga all the way to the future hosts of Breeders Cup meetings years from now!

Our mission is not merely to list the most important horse racing courses in the country but also to recommend online race books and sports books that offer betting on these tracks. Most of the sites that we feature will give you a better deal than you could hope to find on the course itself from weekly rebates on the bets you place to sign up bonuses when you open a real money wagering account.
