The main dog racing track in Jacksonville, Florida, is located in Orange Park. It hosts race meets for BestBest Jacksonville and St. Johns, as well as the Orange Park Kennel Club.
St Johns was a former dog track in the Jacksonville area. It was taken over by BestBet, converted into a casino block, and closed in 2012. The only race track left in Jacksonville is the large facility located in Orange Park. Races run at the dog track include the Orange Park Derby, James J. Patton Marathon and Silver Cup and the Jacksonville Sprint Classic.
Live racing has been done in Orange Park since 1935. Since the BestBet complex was built in 1978, it is possible to watch local greyhound racing in comfort. It is also possible to watch dog races in other locations via the large TV screens.
