Caliente - they had bookies with fixed odds as well as mutuels. You could bet $1 with the books and age didn't matter.

Tanforan - a deep, slow course that favored horses that liked the mud

Washington Park and old Arlington

Hialeah - the most beautiful track that ever was

Tropical Park

Randall Park - it was near Thistledown and the last time I was there the shopping mall that replaced it was defunct

Old Latonia

Beulah Park

I loved Centennial!....In Littleton, not that far away from Lowry AFB, where I did my Tech training.

Pompano still going I think. I forgot about River Downs- Id been there too. I think Belterra is the same footprint but a different building, or did they move?

Hollywood Park:
Friday night card @ Hollywood Park.
When I had to spend the week working in LA, great way to end it before flying back to Seattle.

To paraphrase The Pretenders,

"the tracks of the country
have been replaced by shopping malls"

Roosevelt, Liberty Bell and Brandywine all fit that description I believe

Hialeah & Calder

The other one is Cahokia Downs, which closed in 1980 when I was 12 years old.
