61 Sensational Seasons. We’re Just Getting Started
Turf Paradise has just wrapped up its 61st season, marking another milestone and serving as the Valley’s only horseracing track. When Turf Paradise opened its doors in 1956, we were the state’s first professional sports franchise. A lot has changed since then, but we believe competition breeds innovation. Turf Paradise’s races are viewed at Off Track Betting locations from London to Dubai and from Flagstaff to Yuma. Wagering and attendance remain brisk. This past season more than 1,800 horses were stabled at our facility as trainers, jockeys, and horse owners continue to come to Turf Paradise for a chance to compete. They come from 18 states and three Canadian provinces. That’s about 150 more horses than last year and a tribute to the outreach efforts by so many. Read More...
