Fairmount Park – Fanduel Sportsbook and Horse Racing

Fairmount Park is a horse-racing track in Collinsville, Illinois, United States. It opened in 1925, at Collinsville Rd.

History of Fairmount Park

1925 – On September 26, 1925, the racetrack was opened

1969 – Ogden Corporation purchased the racetrack.

1974 – Fairmount Park was the first track (mile) to run under the lights back in 1947. In the same year, Fairmount Park was destroyed by fire.

1997 – Fairmount Park racing dates declined from 232 live racing days to 90 days per year on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

1999 Standardbred harness racing ceased to continue. 

2000 – The racetrack was sold to Bill Stiritz. He is the chairman of Ralston Purina Co. and the principal owner of St. Louis Park Ltd. He owned 95 percent in liability, while the remaining 5 percent was purchased by Brian Zander, Fairmount’s current vice president and general manager.

2007 – Announced a plan to build a 20,000-seat amphitheater at the track. When the legislature did not approve slots in its regular session, Fairmount management applied to the Illinois Racing Board for 90 days of live racing but said that if lawmakers did not approve relief for horse tracks in its November veto session, the track would only run 60 days, citing declining attendance and betting handle, competition from casinos, and overpayment of the horsemen’s account for purses.

2012 – Racing returned in the racetrack.

2020 – The partnership with the New York-based online sports betting company FanDuel Group and Fairmount Park made it known as FanDuel Sportsbook and Horse Racing.

2023 – It completed a $700,000 renovation project which includes a kitchen and lounge, a wellness center, and new offices for the group representing horse owners and trainers at the facility.
