    About Emerald Downs Racetrack


    Seattle has been known as The Emerald City since 1982, when officials held a contest to determine a new nickname – apparently “Queen City of the Northwest” was a little too long. It’s in the Seattle suburb of Auburn where you’ll find Emerald Downs, which opened in 1996 and replaced historic Longacres Racetrack as Washington’s top destination for thoroughbred racing.


    Despite its name, Emerald Downs does not have a turf track, but it does have a one-mile oval dirt track that has become the center of controversy because of injuries to the horses. Almost $1 million was spent on improvements in 1997, and officials continue to tweak the composition of the surface, adding sand here and there to compensate for the hardening clay. Even with the changes and the frequently rainy conditions, this is still one of the fastest tracks you’ll find in the United States.


    Emerald Downs hosts the Grade 3 $200,000 Longacres Mile Handicap, a one-mile race for 3-year- olds and up that has been part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series since 2008. Winners are automatically entered into the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. The Longacres Mile was first run in 1935; past winners include 2011 champion Awesome Gem, the chestnut gelding who bumped Street Sense for third place at the 2007 Breeders' Cup Classic.


    Thoroughbred racing is held at Emerald Downs between April and September. Quarter Horses were added in 2010 and are expected to run more regularly as part of the schedule.
