Windsor Raceway

Windsor Raceway is a standardbred harness racing track located in Windsor, Ontario. The track is 5/8 of a mile in length.

The inaugural race took place on October 22, 1965, with Castle Direct driven by Fred Roloson, the first horse to ever cross the line with a time of 2:10.

Opening day attendance - 5,136 persons.

The track served both the thoroughbred and standardbred interests until the late seventies when the track was upgraded from a relatively flat tartan surface to the banked corner, spiral graded limestone surface still in use today.[1]
