Located at Central and Yonkers Avenue in Westchester County, New York, Yonkers Raceway sits approximately eight miles away from historic Yankee Stadium.
Originally named the Empire City Race Track, Yonkers Raceway was established by William H. Clark just before the turn of the 19th century. James Butler, a grocery magnate, purchased it in 1907 for the purposes of thoroughbred horse racing. In 1942, eight years after the death of Butler, the track was converted back to a harness race track. Renamed to “Yonkers Raceway” in 1950, the track is currently owned by the Rooney family, who continue the proud tradition of harness racing at this venue.
Yonkers previously was the site of the Cane Pace, one of the legs of the Triple Crown of Harness Racing for Pacers. The track is home to major harness events like the Yonkers Trot, Art Rooney Pace and Messenger Stakes.
The dirt track has a final stretch of 660 feet (200 m) and is 98 feet wide.
The horse betting action at Yonkers Raceway is nothing short of exhilarating. Bet on any of Yonkers Raceway's regular races during its season, or better yet, bet on the ponies during a major Yonkers Raceway horse stakes or handicap event.
