Scarborough Downs Harness Race Track is home to New England's fastest half-mile track and was voted Southern Maine's #1 top Recreation Destination two years in a row! Patrons can watch live harness racing during the 2014 season from March 29 to December 21 (with a break for the fairs from Sept. 8 through Oct. 9). Or watch races via simulcast from premier thoroughbred and harness tracks across the US and Canada on our color TVs throughout the Grandstand and Clubhouse buildings. We're open 363 days a year, noon - midnight. Our 300-seat Downs Club Restaurant is open to the public on select days (please inquire) and offers a birds'-eye view of all the live racing action with a TV monitor at every table, full bar and betting windows just a few steps away. Two full trackside air conditioned lounges, with bar specials daily. Concessions specials daily. Admission is FREE. Group accommodations of 14 to 300 and bus tours welcome. Visit our Harness Racing Hall of Fame in the Grandstand that contains some memoribilia from racing over the years at the iconic track. So what are you waiting for? Get to the track!
