Lone Star Park Celebrates 25 Years


Lone Star Park | Horsephotos

Lone Star Park celebrates its 25th anniversary season this year with the continued optimism that has permeated Texas racing since passage of the 2019 legislation that channeled a portion of sales tax on horse feed and supplies into purses. The Grand Prairie meet runs April 28 through July 24, most Thursdays through Sundays, plus Memorial Day May 30 and July 4. There is no racing on Thursdays May 5 and 26, June 2 and 30 and July 7. Marquee stakes days include the Lone Star Million Day on Memorial Day, Lone Star Showcase Day on June 19, Summer Turf Festival on July 16 and Stars of Texas Day on July 17. Lone Star Park is scheduled to pay out $12.8 million to horse owners over the 48-date meet, averaging about $268,000 a day.
