The Detroit Race Course was a horse racing facility in Livonia, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Although opened in 1950, racing thoroughbreds, the track owners also leased the company to Wolverine Raceway for Standardbred harness racing events.[1]

The business was sold to Ladbroke in 1985,[2] a UK-based hotel and gambling company. Harness racing was discontinued in 1985. In May 1998 Ladbroke announced the sale of Detroit Race Course. The new owners Millennium demolished the facilities in the summer of 1999 to make way for commercial development.
