Southland Casino Racing

Southland Casino Racing is a Racino (racing track and casino) in West Memphis, Arkansas, United States. It opened in 1956, at 1550 N. Ingram Blvd.

History of Southland Casino Racing

1956 – Southland Casino Racing (formerly Southland Greyhound Park and Southland Park Gaming and Racing) is a casino, buffet, and greyhound racetrack in West Memphis, Arkansas. It is one of the oldest operating greyhound tracks and hosts one of the top greyhound racing programs in the United States, which opened in 1956. It also has the highest purse in the North American market. 

In the 1990s – The average daily betting handle of the track dropped by 20 percent within the seven months from October 1992 to March 1993 because of the new casino gambling nearby Tunica, Mississippi.

2006 – Due to the decrease in income, the park’s owner invested an estimated $40 million in 2006 to enhance the facilities, including electronic games of skill, electronic blackjack, and video poker machines, following the approval of the Arkansas General Assembly. Southland has added more than 300 new employees, making it the third largest employer in West Memphis, with 660 employees.

2008 – The expansion of electronic gaming hours was permitted at the facility by unanimous approval of the Arkansas Racing Commission to boost revenue and confront continued competition from the Mississippi casinos in May 2008.

2014 –Southland Casino Racing announced its nearly $38 million expansion and renovation.

2019 – As of April 1, 2019, Southland became a full casino under Amendment 100 to the Constitution of Arkansas, approved by voters in 2018. However, in the same year, in 2019, they also announced that live greyhound racing would cease at Southland by December 2022 after Amendment 13 was passed by Florida voters in November 2018.
