Finger Lakes Racetrack – Bet On the Finger Lakes Race Cards

The Finger Lakes races have been in operation since May 23 1962 when the racecourse opened and there have been Finger Lakes race cards available ever since, with the complex now known as the Finger Lakes Gaming and Race Track.

This is a Flat racing course and spectators and racegoers have been enjoying Finger Lakes betting odds for a number of decades, with the track changing hands on several occasions although it still hosts a number of high-profile meetings.

You will notice that there are Finger Lakes betting markets available when there’s a US race meeting taking place and that means an opportunity to go through the Finger Lakes racecard and pick out a few winners along the way.

The location of the Finger Lakes racecourse is Route 96 Farmington, with this being a short distance away from New York and the track is currently owned by Delaware North.

The Wadsworth Memorial Handicap is another big race that takes place on the Finger Lakes race card, with this being a thoroughbred horse race which is open to runners aged three or older. While this isn’t a graded race, it takes place on the 4th July each year and brings out plenty of spectators.

The New York Breeders' Futurity is another notable spectacle that takes place at the Finger Lakes race course, with this six-furlong encounter promising a real hammer and tongs down the dirt track straight and there are lots of horse generally in with a chance of victory.
