Horse Racing Could be Coming Back to Swartz Creek
Sports Creek Raceway in Swartz Creek has been closed since 2015. There was a for sale sign on the road sign for a few years, but not plans are moving forward to bring horse racing back to Mid-Michigan.
Sports Creek has been purchased by new owners, who according to WNEM plan to bring new life to the track. Amwest Entertainment purchased the property on Morrish Road in Swartz Creek. According to WNEM, they plan to start simulcasting right away. The track needs some repairs, so while they are working to revamp the building they will simulcast horse races.
Renovations have already begun around the property to get it ready for visitors. They are expecting races to begin in the summer of 2019.
