Delta Downs History

The track of Delta Downs was established in 1970 to hold low-level quarter and thoroughbred horseracing meets. It is Louisiana’s premier racetrack and offers exquisite unique excitement of slot jackpots and casino facilities. During 1990s, Shawn Scott acquired the racetrack against $10 million and shortly thereafter, the track was sold for over $100 million to Boyd Gaming.

Hurricane Rita damaged the Casino hotel and the track badly. After two months, the Casino and Hotel were partly opened but the track was closed for nearly six months after the hurricane.
