Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park, more commonly known simply as Pompano Park, is a standardbred harness racing track and casino in Pompano Beach, Florida. It is billed as "The Winter Home of Harness Racing," as its tropical South 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.

Like most racetracks, Pompano simulcasts horse races from all over the USA and Canada, allowing its patrons to wager on racing approximately 363 days per year. Pompano Park is owned and operated by Eldorado Resorts.

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

In 2018, Eldorado Resorts announced a joint venture with the Cordish Companies to develop the area surrounding Pompano Park with a mixed-use project including retail, dining, office, residential, and hotel elements.[1]

Charitable activities[edit]

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