Sports Creek Raceway History

Sports Creek Raceway near Flint, Michigan was the second harness track to open in the state in the 1980's. While Saginaw Valley was the first new track to open since 1950, Sports Creek was the first new facility built since that date. Unlike it's sister track in Saginaw, Sports Creek is still in operation.

Sports Creek Raceway traditionally closes out the year and starts a new season in Michigan harness racing. Along with Northville Downs and Hazel Park the trio provide year round harness racing in the state.

On February 2, 1994, driver Daniel Rathka is killed in accident on the track.

In 2011, Sports Creek, a non-racino venue, was cut to only sixteen live racing dates. Brad Kramer and Kody Massey each had 29 victories tying them for the driving crown.

In 2012 Sports Creek picked up a few more dates, but only ran two cards a week. To make up for fewer days, sixteen races were run at each card. Marc St. Louis picked up the leading rider title. Sports Creek is on track to open again in 2013, October through December.

Sports Creek Raceway offers food and drinks in the 480 seat Clubhouse Restaurant. The Clubhouse has televisions for simulcast thoroughbred and harness horse races in North America. The Clubhouse has seven terraced levels overlooking the track and personal televisions on every table.

Sports Creek has a large, indoor heated Grandstand for viewing simulcast and live horse racing. Mutuel tellers and self-serve betting machines are located throughout the Grandstand.
