Oaklawn District History

Since its establishment in 1904, Oaklawn Racing Casino and Resort, formerly known as Oaklawn Park, has held a prominent position as one of the country's premier Thoroughbred racetracks. With a rich history in Thoroughbred racing, Oaklawn has produced remarkable champions like Smarty Jones, who clinched victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, as well as Afleet Alex, the winner of the Preakness and Belmont. Throughout the past decade, the track has welcomed some of the most notable names in the sport. In 2015, Oaklawn played a significant role in launching the extraordinary season of American Pharoah, the Triple Crown winner, who triumphed in the Rebel Stakes and Arkansas Derby on his path to becoming the first horse in 37 years to secure victories in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes.

In November 2018, Arkansas voters approved a constitutional amendment that authorized the introduction of casinos for the first time. It was during this period that Oaklawn embarked on its expansion, introducing a state-of-the-art casino operating around the clock, an impressive eight-story luxury hotel, a top-tier spa, numerous dining establishments, and a spacious 15,000-square-foot event center.
