TODAY’S TRACK FROM THE PAST

Birmingham Turf Club

Birmingham Race Course, is located in Birmingham, Alabama. Opened in 1987, at a cost of around 80 million dollars it was a state of the art facility. It had a one mile dirt oval, with a seven furlong inner turf course, that was sodded to make opening day, but was never ever used. The grandstand was a seven story structure that seated 5,200 on four levels.
