RACING WITH INTEGRITY

We’re on a mission to create a fun, safe, and exceptional experience for our customers that makes a positive impact in equestrian and local communities of Oregon. Grants Pass Downs promotes the ethical racing of horses and takes the safety of our horsemen very seriously. We believe in extending the careers of our horses and horsemen and in order to meet that goal, we’re committed to radically improving our racetrack.

In addition to the ongoing improvement of the racetrack, Grants Pass Downs is proud of its care of its horses and horsemen. Each horse receives a pre-race vet check for every single race and they are pulled at the slightest unsound indicator. Oregon is the national leader in implementing pre-race vet checks before our races and will continue to do this to prevent injuries of our horsemen and horses.

LIVE RACING SINCE 1968...

Located at the Josephine County Fairgrounds, Grants Pass Downs has hosted live pari-mutuel horse racing since 1968. None of this would have been possible without Don Jackson,
one of the most prominent figures for more than 50 years at Grants Pass Downs, who was a pioneer in developing the interest of horse racing in Southern Oregon.

Racing at Grants Pass Downs is a legacy that has been handed down through generations of families and we celebrate the continuity of our horsemen.

CONNECT.
PLAY. WIN.

Winning is easy with Grants Pass Downs as we offer both online and off track betting options, and events are live streamed through TVG.
