Fairmount Park Racetrack is a horse racing track in Collinsville, Illinois.
This racetrack is located near St. Louis, Missouri, and is one of very few horse racing venues in the state. This particular track is used for racing thoroughbred horses.
The Fairmount Park Racetrack is home to a number of great events, especially in the spring and summer. Some years, the racetrack hosts the Kentucky Derby. In the summer months, weekly events known as Parties at the Park are hosted. On these nights, anyone twenty-one and older can attend the racetrack and eat, drink, listen to live music, and watch the races.
The racetrack first opened back in 1925. Fairmount Park Racetrack used to house races almost every day of the year, but is now operated less frequently due to a decline in business. When events are held at the racetrack, however, they are usually huge and the place is packed.
The Fairmount Park Racetrack is a great place to go for a day of racing, or for a night out on the time. Also, the Casino Queen is less than fifteen minutes away.
