Yonkers Raceway & Empire City Casino

Yonkers Raceway is a horse-racing track in Yonkers, New York, United States. It opened in 1899, at Yonkers Ave.

History

Yonkers Raceway was opened in 1899 by William H. Clark’s Empire City Trotting Club. But after he died in 1900, the track remained close for most of the duration of seven years. Originally built for Harness Racing, the thoroughbred racing was brought into the track by the second owner, James Butler, in 1907. In 1936, the unparalleled Seabiscuit, one notable thoroughbred racehorse, won the Scarsdale Handicap Stakes Race. Currently, the Yonkers Raceway features year-round harness racing on the five nights per week schedule. The Rooney Family acquired Yonkers Raceway in 1972, and MGM Resorts International purchased it from the Rooney family in 2019.

This track is located in Yonkers, New York, owned by MGM Growth Properties and operated by MGM Resorts International. Some notable recorded races of this track are George Morton Levy, Memorial Pacing Series, Blue Chip Matchmaker, Art Rooney Pace, Lawrence B. Sheppard Pace, Lismore Pace, Yonkers Trot, Hudson Filly Trot, Messenger Stakes, Lady Maud Pace, and New York Night of Champions.
