FanDuel Sportsbook and Racing (formerly named Fairmount Park) is open year-round for off track wagering and has live racing from May through September.
The track is located in Collinsville, Illinois, part of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The track hosts Thoroughbred flat racing. It is one of five horse racing venues currently active in Illinois, and the only one outside the Chicago metro area. The track also featured Standardbred Harness racing, but discontinued it in 1999.
The track opened in 1925. The racing surface is a one-mile (1.6 km) dirt oval, with straight chutes for six furlongs and 1¼ mile races.
Ogden Corporation bought the track in 1969. In 2000, Ogden sold the track to Bill Stiritz, then the chairman of Ralston Purina.
In 2021, FanDuel Group announced a partnership with Stiritz and associates to revitalize the iconic 95-year-old track including significant upgrades to the facility and the establishment of a FanDuel Sportsbook retail location. FanDuel Group and TVG also funded the renewal and running of the $250,000 St. Louis Derby, the track’s signature event, which had not been conducted since 2006 due to financial constraints.
FanDuel Sportsbook and Racing offers simulcast wagering from tracks throughout the country.
