  Good Manors Weren't Enough!     

Manor Downs Located near Austin, Manor Downs was a straightaway quarter horse track which was a popular a non pari-mutual facility before Texas again legalized gambling in 1987. Known more for concerts it hosted Farm Aid II, The Gratetful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan to name a few. After a few years and many delayed openings pari-mutual wagering on quarter horses at Manor Downs became a reality in October of 1990, becoming Texas' third class II track.

Manor Downs  In 2002 the Texas Racing Commission ordered Manor Downs to upgrade its facility to accommodate thoroughbreds and a seven and one half furlong oval was constructed. This allowed the track to stay in business a few more years, but the economic downturn and competition from Retama Park forced the track ou of business in 2010.   

 Manor Downs originally opened in 1975 and held non betting races and was also used as a training facility as well as a concert venue. Manor Downs was the oldest race track in Texas to offer pari-mutual wagering.
