When temperatures start cooling down, the much-anticipated Thoroughbred racing season at Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort is just around the corner.

Oaklawn is one of the world’s premier destinations for Thoroughbred racing. Live racing season starts December 8 and runs until May 4, with four separate races with purses of more than $1 million on the 2023-2024 stakes schedule.

Racing is just one aspect of what makes Oaklawn great. With a state-of-the-art casino, luxurious hotel and high-class resort amenities, Oaklawn has established itself as the entertainment and leisure destination of the Mid-South while still honoring its storied racing legacy.

Oaklawn continues to prove this with the addition of the Mainline Sports Bar, a family-friendly sports-themed experience with more than 90 large screen TVs, axe throwing, shuffleboard and three Topgolf Swing Suites offering simulated golf, baseball, hockey and soccer.

With slots, table games, high limits areas and a Sportsbook, every player will find something to love at Oaklawn’s casino. Slots can be played with denominations starting at just $.01, and Oaklawn’s more than 1,500 slot machines include video poker games.

For players who prefer table games, the casino offers classic games such as blackjack, three-card poker, craps and roulette as well as innovative electronic table games.

When you’re not gaming or watching the races, Oaklawn offers live music at Pop’s Lounge every weekend and diverse live headliner entertainment at the event center.

The perfect accompaniment to every stay is a delicious meal, and with numerous culinary options, Oaklawn has left no stone unturned.

Their newest dining experience is the OAK Room & Bar, a high-class restaurant serving handcrafted French-inspired Southern entrees and tantalizing desserts like bananas foster bread pudding paired with coffee, cordials or dessert wines.
