Horse Racing at Balmoral Park

Founded in 1925, Balmoral Park Race Track officially held its first horse racing event in 1927 under the name of Lincoln Fields.

In 1955, Balmoral Jockey Club purchased Lincoln Fields. The same year, the name of the racetrack was changed to Balmoral Park Race Track.

In 1967, one of Balmoral Park Race Track's tracks was converted to a half-mile track for harness racing track. Since then, the facility has been primarily a harness racing venue, with thoroughbred racing hosted occasionally throughout the years.
