History of Hinsdale Greyhound Racing Park

Hinsdale Greyhound Racing Park , originally named Hinsdale Raceway, was established in 1958 for harness horse racing. Members of the Sullivan family from Lowell, Massachusetts, were early stockholders of the company.

During the late 60's, Hinsdale Raceway enjoyed enormous success, just as harness racing had become very popular in the United States.

Greyhound racing came to New Hampshire in the early 70's. Hinsdale Greyhound Racing Park was the first track in the United States to install a heated track surface.

The heated track made greyhound racing possible even during the cold New England winters. Since then, many tracks in colder climates installed similar track heating systems.

For 13 years, Hinsdale operated a harness horse meet each summer and live greyhound racing throughout the rest of the year. By the mid 80's, maintaining a small seasonal harness meet had become impossible. The Final season of live harness racing at Hinsdale was held in 1985.

From 1985 until today, Hinsdale runs live greyhound racing 52 weeks per year.

In 1990 Hinsdale Greyhound Racing Park began full-card simulcasts from other greyhound racing facilities in the United States.

Now, in addition to live greyhound racing, Hinsdale Greyhound Racing Park offer simulcasts of greyhound, harness, and thoroughbred races from major tracks across the United States.
