“Cross another track off the list”
Review of Scarborough Downs

Scarborough Downs
Reviewed 6 May 2016

We stopped by while on vacation in Maine. Stopped by after having dinner. It was on the weekend. It is an older track. We stayed for about 6 races, would have stayed longer, but the fog was rolling in and getting pretty thick, so we left to get back to the hotel. If you like harness or horse racing, should stop by to visit so you can mark it off your track list of been there done that. Overall a nice and pleasant experience.

Good race track. Very large clubhouse and outdoor areas. Never too crowded. Too bad more people don't enjoy harness racing. There is also broadcast of races from other tracks. I great for a relaxing day at the track.

If you want to have a good time with friends while you're visiting Scarborough ME and its area you must go to the Downs. You'll have a great time with friends and the people on staff are very welcoming and will guide you with the schedules and everything and you will be able to dine there also,

Well, Scarborough Downs is racing again! Nice to be back. This track in its 65th season is a little Jewel in Southern Maine. Free to get in, a program for $1.75 and off you go to the races. Food is inexpensive and good and great views of the racing can be enjoyed by all. Truly country racing in a great setting. We had a great time!

I would rate the grounds/stands as poor and the quality of the horses and races as very good.
The stands and building are in need of repairs and updating. A lot of space not being used.
I had heard the owner does not want to put any money into the track and it shows.
