Lone Star Park is a horse racing track located in Grand Prairie, Texas.

History

Lone Star Park opened in 1997. The track offers separate meets for Thoroughbred racing and Quarter Horse racing. In October 2002, Magna Entertainment Corp. (MEC), based in Aurora, Ontario, leased the facility and acquired the operations. In 2004, it was the site of the Breeders' Cup. The seating capacity was temporarily increased for the Breeders' Cup to 50,000 people. Lone Star Park's premier event of the Thoroughbred meeting is Lone Star Million Day, held each Memorial Day with six stakes races worth just over $1 million.

Physical Attributes

Lone Star Park covers 315 acres (1.27 km2), and includes a pavilion for simulcasting. The track has a one-mile (1.6 km) dirt oval and a seven-furlong turf track, and has accommodations for 1,600 horses across 32 barns. The grandstand has a seating capacity of roughly 8,000 people.
