Pompano Park and Poker, more commonly known simply as Pompano Park, is a standardbred harness racing track located in Pompano Beach, Florida. It is billed as "The Winter Home of Harness Racing," as its Florida location makes it an ideal alternative for horsemen, when most of the racetracks to the north are subject to racing in snow, ice and bitter cold conditions. The track operates its live racing meet for about ten months out of every year, with a short break during the last half of June through the second week in August.

As do most other racetracks, Pompano simulcasts both Harness and Thoroughbred races from all over the USA and Canada, allowing its patrons the opportunity to wager on racing approximately 363 days per year. Pompano Park is owned by Isle of Capri Casinos.

The track has been converted into a racino called The Isle, complete with slot machines. It currently offers live poker games, under betting limitations imposed by Florida law.

Charitable activities[edit]

Pompano Park has long been a major donor to Our Father's House Soup Kitchen in Pompano Beach.
