(Betting is optional) Meet: Watch for more info where we'll meet About Sam Houston Race Park: Sam Houston opened on April 24, 1994, and is the first Class 1 Horse Racing venue constructed in Texas. It cost approximately $90 million to construct and is used as a concert venue when races aren't being held. The race park is considered the fastest growing race track in America based on attendance over the past year. The park is named for, Sam Houston, who was an influential general and later president of the Republic of Texas. Sam Houston bought Valley Race Park, a greyhound track in Harlingen, in 2000. Sam Houston Race Park's largest attendance was recorded on July 4, 2008 with an attendance of 32,177. In August 2017 Sam Houston opened its doors to the equine victims of hurricane Harvey. The facility made it through the disaster with little damage and flooding, so they offered refuge to over 100 displaced horses in the Houston area. Their racing barns were empty at the time due to the live racing season having already ended for the year. This is one of Sonja's Adventures! 101 Houston Happenings!
