Hazel Park

Hazel Park Raceway, located at 1650 East Ten Mile Road, Hazel Park, Michigan, offers some of the best harness racing action in the country.

Hazel Park carries the distinction of being the first 5/8ths mile track in America, and it has attracted some of the nation's top drivers, trainers and horses since its inaugural harness meet in 1953. The track was a dual-breed facility from 1949 through 1984 and has hosted harness racing exclusively since 1985.

Michigan's strong harness racing foundation coupled with a steady influx of racing stables from across of the U.S. and Canada has helped cement Hazel Park Raceway's status as among the industry's best.

  • Motor City Pace
  • Rose Red Pace
  • Wm. C. Connors Trot
  • Nicole Hudock Memorial Pace
