Canada's fastest half mile track

About Us


From the starting gate to the finishing line, flamboro downs presents a unique and entertaining evening for individuals and groups alike. Parking and admission is always FREE.

Set on 220 acres on Highway #5 west, between highways 6 and 8, flamboro downs has grown substantially since its April 1975 opening. Races are usually held five days a week every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, & Sunday evenings at 6 P.M. (see schedule here).

A typical flamboro downs live race card will include at least 10 or 11 races, and often more.

Live evening racing and dining is available in The Top O' The Turn Dining Room with its spectacular, panoramic view of Canada’s fastest half-mile track. There is also the Pavilion Restaurant Trackside which is just a few short steps from both the racetrack and 752 Slot Machines. Group packages are available for any type of function including company parties, fundraisers, birthday and anniversary parties, social events and more. “Plan and Play” in the Confederation Room Conference Suite for state of the art business meetings, group and social functions.

In addition to the live flamboro downs harness racing, both thoroughbred and standardbred racing from other tracks across North America are simulcast daily from 12 noon. Wagers can be placed on flamboro downs live races as well as simulcasts from across North America and all can be viewed on specially dedicated TV monitors. flamboro downsDeli is open from 12 noon during live racing, the Sports Emporium is open for both live and simulcast racing and the Pavilion Food Court is open from 8 A.M. until midnight seven days a week. With trotters and pacers decked out in their identifying colours, fans can enjoy the show outdoors or from flamboro downs’ climate controlled grandstand.

An off-track betting network offers racing from teletheatres in Hamilton, Brantford, Burlington and Stoney Creek.
