Horse Racing History

The Green Mountain State didn’t legalize pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing until 1961, via a state-wide mandate. Within two years, Green Mountain Park opened in Pownal. It was constructed on a site that was originally a cornfield, along the banks of the Hoosic River and built for a cost of $6 million. The track’s owners envisioned it becoming the Saratoga of Vermont, serving as a tourist attraction with its proximity to the New York and Massachusetts borders.

Originally, it operated as a thoroughbred track. Ultimately, winter standardbred racing was added at the track. Green Mountain Park was also one of the first tracks in the USA to experiment with nighttime racing and the first racetrack east of the Mississippi River to offer Sunday racing.

The thoroughbreds stopped racing there in 1976, while the standardbreds left for good in 1977. Green Mountain Park became a dog track until closing in 1992.

There was also fair racing for years in Rutland but wagering on these races was not permitted.
