Milestones in the History of Pompano Park

  • In 1953, a New York ad executive turned horse breeder named Frederick Van Lennen purchased a failed Depression-era thoroughbred racing track and vowed to build the “Taj Mahal” of harness racing. He faced formidable legal opposition from various parties with interests in the pari-mutuel business.

  • On February 4, 1964, the $5.5 million Pompano Park first opened its gates to the public. Pompano Park’s inaugural season was a 46-night harness racing meet.
  • Throughout its 40-year history, Pompano Park has hosted many of harness racing’s greatest horses, drivers and trainers. Each year, it also hosts several charitable fund raising events. It is the home of the Broward County Fair. It has also been designated a hurricane shelter for horses for Florida.
