Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino, and Hotel

Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino, and Hotel is a horse-racing track in Vinton, Louisiana, United States. It opened in 1973, at Delta Downs Dr.

History of Delta Downs Racetrack

1973 – Originally, Delta Downs Racetrack was opened in 1973 under the direction of Lee Berwick as a facility for Quarter Horse racing, then went to hold Thoroughbred meets. 

1990’s – After Delta Downs Racetrack was bought by Shawn Scott, a developer, for $10 million, a law was passed enabling the production of slot machines at the racetrack. But shortly after, it was bought again for over $120 million by Boyd gaming and was renovated right after.

2005 – It was renovated again after Hurricane Rita destroyed the gulf coast. Since then, Delta Downs has produced several stakes-quality Thoroughbreds.
