Are you ready for another racing season at Oaklawn Park in beautiful Hot Springs, Arkansas? The official 2019 season of live thoroughbred racing begins this Friday, Jan. 25, and for the first time, doesn't end until Saturday, May, 4.

One of the highlights of opening weekend is being able to purchase their world famous corned beef sandwich for only 50 cents on Saturday along with 10-cent soft drinks.

This weekend will feature a full nine race card highlighted by the $100,000 American Beauty Stakes. Gates open at 11AM and first post time race is 12:30PM on opening day. Don;t forget while you wait for the races there is plenty of gaming fun and if you're 50 or older enjoy Monday Funday every Monday.

Hard to believe this is their 115th year for races in the spa city. See 2019 racing schedule.

The 2019 live racing season runs through May 4th.  Races are Thursday through Sunday.
