Covered Horse Bridge at Bowie Race Track The Bowie Race Track was a horse racing track located just outside the city limits of Bowie, Maryland. Opened October 1, 1914 by the Southern Maryland Agricultural Society, the racetrack was a major attraction in the area, serving the now defunct WB&A Railroad that drew passengers from New York, Philadelphia and points along the way. The track was a natural addition to the area, home to the Belair Stud Farm, founded by Samuel Ogle and credited as the "Cradle of American thoroughbred racing." In the 1950s, Bowie Race Track was a pioneer of winter racing in the Northeastern United States. Some of the races inaugurated at the Bowie track include: Native Dancer Stakes Barbara Fritchie Handicap Endurance Handicap During the night of January 31, 1966 a fire burned down five barns at the track that took the lives of at least 43 horses. [1] Competition from new racing operations such as Keystone Racetrack in Bensalem, Pennsylvania ultimately led to the demise of the Bowie Race Track which ceased racing operations on July 14, 1985. The track now serves as a training center for Thoroughbred racehorses. The track and training facility is now owned by MI Developments Inc. (MID).[1] References ^ "34th Annual Bowie Heritage Day on May 19th Celebrates Grand Opening of the Newly Restored Belair Stable Museum, Cradle of American Thoroughbred Racing" (PDF), Bowie Spotlight (City of Bowie): 1, 2, May–June 2002, http://www.cityofbowie.org/news/newsletters/mayjune02.pdf  July 14, 1985 New York Times article titled Bowie Race Course Closes External links Article about winter racing at Bowie Racetrack and the "Bowie Breed" Coordinates: 39°00′20″N 76°44′21″W / 39.00556°N 76.73917°W / 39.00556; -76.73917 This article about a building or structure in Maryland is a stub.
