The last horse track in Michigan, Northville Downs, is scheduled to shut with the intention of moving at some point in the future.

After 80 years of operation, the track at 301 S. Center St. in Northville will host its last racing day on Saturday, February 3. Simulcast racing bets will no longer be accepted at Northville Downs as of Monday, February 5.

Northville Downs Will Be Bulldozed Following Closure

The existing Northville Downs facility will be dismantled for a $250 million redevelopment project once it closes. The project will include new residential and commercial buildings. Northville Downs has previously proposed new racetrack and casino location in Plymouth Township, but little is known about the project as of January 2024.

Northville Downs, which opened for business in 1944, is the only track in Michigan still offering live horse racing.

In a news statement, MGCB Executive Director Henry Williams said that the Michigan Gaming Control Board would like to thank all of the Northville Downs customers who have contributed to each exciting and memorable race day.

In addition, he expressed excitement for the next phase of horse racing in Michigan at a new venue. The last round of racing is scheduled to occur on February 3.

Additionally, track visitors should be informed that Saturday, February 10 is the last day to cash in any winning bets.

After this date, customers may submit winning tickets to 47526 Clipper St., Northville Downs, PO BOX 701220, Plymouth, MI 4817
