Longacres was a racetrack in the northwest United States, located in Renton, Washington, a suburb southeast of Seattle. From 1933 to 1992, it was the home of thoroughbred racing in western Washington and was the longest continually operated track on the West Coast. Longacres was the first racetrack on the coast based on parimutuel betting. The land was sold to the Boeing Company in 1990, and the track closed 26 years ago in September 1992.
After a three-year absence, the new Emerald Downs in Auburn opened in 1996 as the new home of horse racing in western Washington. It currently hosts the Longacres Mile Handicap, a race first run in 1935. From 1993–95, the race was run at Yakima Meadows racetrack in Yakima.
