Race Track

There is a lot of history to Batavia Downs going back to 1939 and their big opening the next year. It is the oldest lighted harness racing track in the country.  The addition of video lottery terminals in 2005 help to fund better purses and gave the operators a bigger budget for track improvements as well.

Race dates are from late July through early December with post times of 6:35pm Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday (plus Tuesdays in September) and 1:15pm on Sundays and the occasional special monday race.

The facility offers dining options, lounges, and simulcast betting on thoroughbred and harness races throughout the country.
