The Scouting Report

Every week from October through January 10, Turf Paradise’s seven-furlong course rumbles beneath galloping hooves as racers compete for various titles and prizes. The 2014 season lays out a full calendar of events, as well as simulcasting opportunities on dark days. During live races, guests can watch the action while munching popcorn in the grandstands, where the view allows spectators to cheer for their picks and play pretend emperor by giving horses a thumbs-up or thumbs-down.

Turf Paradise

Before professional football, baseball, or basketball had even arrived in Arizona, Turf Paradise was thrilling crowds with horseracing. The state's first professional sports franchise, Turf Paradise opened its gates on January 7, 1956—just two years after businessman Walter Cluer had purchased 1,400 acres of barren desert to build the facility. Since Cluer, only a handful of owners have presided over Turf Paradise, and each has left their mark. For instance, in 2003, owner Jerry Simms built a state-of-the-art equine pool where horses can train or relax during a rousing game of equine Marco Polo. But horses aren't the only ones who have enjoyed improvements over the years. For its visitors, Turf Paradise boasts several dining areas and a grandstand, and at both of its entrances, the facility greets guests with stunning 90-foot marquees.
