Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino, and Hotel

Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino, and Hotel is a horse-racing track in Vinton, Louisiana, United States. It opened in 1973, at Delta Downs Dr.

History

Originally, it was opened in 1973 under the direction of Lee Berwick as a facility for Quarter Horse racing, then went to hold Thoroughbred meets. In the 1990s, after it was bought by Shawn Scott, a developer, for $10 million, a law was passed enabling the production of slot machines at the racetrack. But shortly after, it was bought again for over $120 million by Boyd gaming. It was renovated right after and then again in 2005 after Hurricane Rita destroyed the gulf coast. Since then, Delta Downs has produced several stakes-quality Thoroughbreds.

Some notable racing events in the race track are the: G3 Delta Downs Jackpot – 2-year-olds going 1-1/16 mi.; G3 Delta Downs Princess – 2-year-old fillies going one mile; Louisiana Premier Night – 10 stakes for LA-breds including the Championship and Distaff; and Delta Mile – 3-year-olds & up going one mile.
