On July 14, 1969 Marquis Downs officially opened just six months after the consulting engineer’s commenced design of the project. The track is a five-eighths mile oval with two chutes. The width of the track is 90 feet and the homestretch length is 660 feet. The grandstand has a seating capacity of approximately 3,200 and a stabling capacity of 650. A record attendance of 4,294 was attained on August 13, 1971 and on August 14, 1982 a wagering record of $261,169 was set.
The Saskatchewan Derby which was first run in 1961, is the oldest continuously run stakes race in the province. Many of Western Canada’s finest three year olds have travelled to Marquis Downs to compete in this prestigious race.
Racing is conducted at Marquis Downs from late May until mid September.
