SEMINOLE DOWNS RACECOURSE

The Florida racetrack of Seminole Downs first hosted racing in 1967, offering thoroughbred and quarter-horse racing. An ambitious programme of racing was forecast but, in the end, there was insufficient interest and the programme ceased 12 days prior to its completion.
By 1970 the track had been taken over by a new administrative team who once again offered a programme of thoroughbred racing and, once again, the interest was not there. The track moved over to harness racing in 1973 and lasted for two years before closing in 1975.

The track was then used for greyhound racing, but even that was not viable and by 2008 the grandstand was demolished and the ground covered by a housing estate.
