Lebanon Raceway and Simulcast Center


Experience the Best Harness Racing and Casino Action at Lebanon Raceway!

Lebanon Raceway and Simulcast Center offers exciting harness racing and simulcast action for enthusiasts from all over.

Lebanon Raceway is located in the Ohio town of Lebanon, at the Warren County Fairgrounds, six miles west of Exit 32 on I-71. The raceway is about halfway between the cities of Cincinnati and Dayton.

Since 1948, Lebanon Raceway has been providing harness racing thrills to countless fans and it has become a venerable institution over the years.

Experience live harness racing at Lebanon Raceway from February to June and September to December. Post time is at 6:30pm.

Lebanon Raceway hosts the Ohio Sires Stakes every May.

Meanwhile, you can enjoy simulcasts from harness, thoroughbred and quarter horse racing tracks throughout North America seven days a week. The simulcast center is open from noon until midnight, except Saturdays and Sundays when it closes just after the last race.

Lebanon Raceway also hosts the Warren County Fair dates scheduled every July.


Tragedy struck Lebanon Raceway in 1998 when a barn fire at the fairgrounds killed 35 horses.

On December 5, 2009, 43 horses and two trainers were killed when another fire broke out at a barn. The Ohio State Fire Marshal said the cause of the fires was undetermined but considered the age and design of the barn as factors in the rapid spread of the fire.


Lebanon Raceway is currently undergoing a rebirth.

In December 2012, a joint venture of Churchill Downs, Inc. and Delaware North Companies Gaming and Entertainment named Miami Valley Gaming and Racing completed a purchase of the harness racing licenses and certain assets held by Ohio-based Lebanon Trotting Club, Inc. and Miami Valley Trotting, Inc.

The new owners plan to move the facility in I-75 (on Ohio 63 and Union Road in Turtlecreek Township) sometime in 2014. The new Lebanon Raceway will feature complete harness racing and simulcast operations and new gaming facilities.
