Beulah Park


Beulah Park is Ohio's first thoroughbred racetrack and premier event center, offering live thoroughbred racing from October through to early May. The track also offers Quarter Horse racing on select days throughout the season, with the most notable races occurring in mid-October with three AQHA graded stakes. Just seven miles outside of Columbus, Beulah Park is open seven days a week for LIVE for Simulcast Wagering. It's also known for the Beulah Twins who were the simulcast hosts from 1997 to 2009.

History

Beulah Park opened in Grove City, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, in 1923. It was the first thoroughbred racetrack in Ohio. It is currently one of only three tracks in Ohio to offer live thoroughbred racing, the others being Thistledown in North Randall and River Downs in Cincinnati. In 1983, Beulah Park was the first Ohio track to offer simulcast wagering on the Kentucky Derby.

In 1987, Glacial Princess (a two time Ohio Horse of the Year) died while racing on the track, causing one unlucky patron to lose $34,000.

Other events

During the off-season, Beulah Park is home to concerts and fireworks displays. The park is the host to the second largest Mud Volleyball tournament in the world, with more than thirty courts. The Epilepsy Foundation annually hosts the event on the Beulah Park grounds.
