The 47th Annual Horse Race

Dixie Downs Horse Race

Come to the races and bring the whole family for a great day!

The horse races are a great place for you and your family to see the beauty and the grace of a powerful animal, the horse. With skilled jockeys creating an exciting and amazing race, it is the spectators in awe that really bring the horse race to life.

The races are held at the Washington County Fair Grounds. The facilities are fully equipped with restrooms and a well stocked snack bar.

The St George Lions Club will be serving hot dogs and burgers. All proceeds go back into the community through service projects and donations.
