  Winter  Home of Harness Racing!     

Pompano Park Pompano Park the only standardbred track in Florida. The original site opened in 1953 as a winter training facility, with plans to someday build a racetrack there. It was finally approved in 1963, and in 1964 Pompano Park opened for business as a harness track. Over the years many legs of the prestigious Breeders Crown Series have been run at Pompano Park.

Pompano Park In 1972 Quarter Horse racing was introduced during the summer months to create more revenue. In 1984 it turned out to be a disaster, over 100 horses were banned from racing from a doping scandal, it also seemed like the jockeys were as juiced as the horses. After a year off quarter horse racing returned in 1986. For how long it went on after that, who knows.

In 2011 Pompano ran it's January to December schedule taking off the mid summer months. Wally Hennessey captured the driving title.
