There's Always a Race at Mardi Gras!

Whether it's the thrill of watching live greyhounds and live harness racing or the excitement of catching your favorite simulcast, Mardi Gras has it all covered. Our Florida and West Virginia Greyhound Racing Tracks are two of the hottest in the country. Our Hazel Park Harness Racing Track is the leading track in the entire state of Michigan.

Historic Hollywood Greyhound Track

Greyhound racing in Florida is a tradition at Mardi Gras Casino. Originating in the early 1930's Greyhound racing was one of the main Florida attractions long before Disney World was constructed or resort beach hotels caught on in popularity. Back in the day, thousands would flock to see Greyhound racing in Florida and the tradition lives on today.

Mardi Gras Casino has the largest dog racing grandstand in the country and the only Greyhound track in Broward County. We offer:

  • Live Greyhound racing 5 days a week in season
  • 30 varieties of Greyhound, harness and thoroughbred races are simulcast daily throughout the casino
