    About Fairmount Park Racetrack


    Once upon a time in Collinsville, Illinois, there was a grand old track called Fairmount Park. The track opened in 1925 and is still in operation today, one of only five active horse racing tracks in Illinois and the only one outside the Chicagoland area. However things at Fairmount Park are a little less grand these days.


    Formerly the site of over 200 live days of horse racing every year, Fairmount Park has seen that number dip to 50 days between April and September. The decline began in the late 1990s with the rise of riverboat casinos and the refusal by state lawmakers to approve slot machines for a proposed new development. This caused track officials to abandon harness racing in 1999.


    These aren’t the first challenges Fairmount Park has had to face over the years. The track closed during the Great Depression, the grandstand was destroyed by fire in 1974 and there’s still the occasional flood or tornado making an unwelcome visit. Despite these challenges, Fairmount Park remains a fine venue for thoroughbred horse racing.


    The track at Fairmount Park is a one-mile dirt oval with chutes for six-furlong and 10-fulong races; simulcast wagering is also available at the park. The smaller purses mean there are no stakes races on the calendar. The $250,000 St. Louis Derby was briefly resurrected in 2006 and won by Lawyer Ron, one of the favorites on that year’s Triple Crown trail. Past winners included 1928 champion Misstep, who was sired by Upset, the only horse ever to beat Man o’ War.
