Tuesday, Aug. 4 -- Due to heavy rains and flooding Tampa Bay Downs will be closed today for the second day in a row.
Tampa Bay Downs’ Web site will have updates on when the facility will be able to re-open for its regular schedule of simulcasts, poker and dining.
Tampa Bay Downs, in Oldsmar, is one of numerous Tampa Bay area businesses that were forced to close on Monday due to inclement weather.
During its non-racing season, basically from early May through late November, Tampa Bay Downs (Tampa Bay) is open daily for poker and in-bound simulcasts. Hours of operation and other details may be found on the track’s Web site.
Tampa Bay will resume live racing on Nov. 28--the Saturday directly after Thanksgiving. It will have 88 race days in its 2015-2016 meet.
The main portion of the meet will end on May 8, 2016. The fourth annual two-day Summer Festival of Racing will be held on June 30-July1, 2016. Then, Tampa Bay will have its regular five-month dark period before resuming racing in late November 2016.
