Oaklawn Park Racing

Oaklawn Park is the only thoroughbred horse racing track in Arkansas. It officially opened on February 24, 1905 and in 2009, Oaklawn Park was ranked #9 race track in North America by the Horseplayers Association. Oaklawn has evolved into one of the premier race tracks in the United States and hosts the Arkansas Derby, a Kentucky Derby prep race, every year.
