Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie Review Jump to comments
Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie is the most complete horse-centric entertainment destination we have found so far in Texas. It is located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metro area about 1/2 mile off Interstate 30 on Belt Line Road. The park features two live racing season each year with the Spring Thoroughbred Season usually running from early April through mid July, and the Fall Meeting of Champions from early September through mid November.
Simulcast racing is open 363 days per year at the Bar & Book, a high tech Las Vegas style racebook featuring restaurant fare and full bar service. Silks Dining Terraces offers upscale and casual fare as well as Box Seats and several suites. There are several luxury hotels in the area and Howard Johnsons Express on the property. Lone Star Park was purchased by Global Gaming Solutions in May 2011, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation.
