What to know
Since 1904, Oaklawn has been famous for its live Thoroughbred racing, culminating with one of the richest weeks of racing in America – the Racing Festival of the South featuring the $1 million Arkansas Derby. Derby Day is a time-honored tradition at the Hot Springs track with ladies in their finest hats and men in seersucker suits. It’s the highlight of the racing season that runs from January 25 to the May 4, but the fun doesn’t stop there – in fact, it never stops. Open seven days a week, year-round, Oaklawn gaming offers Vegas-style action in a friendly, casual atmosphere with hundreds of the newest reel games, live table games like blackjack and roulette, and a high limits area. Restaurants and bars also offer a fun time with food, drinks and live music. Oaklawn also features legendary singers and entertainers throughout the year. Oaklawn is Arkansas’ favorite place to play and a must-see stop on your next trip to Hot Springs!
