Playfair Race Course

Playfair Race Course, was the home of horse racing in Spokane, Washington, from 1901 to 2000. The track started out as a four furlong oval, later expanded to five furlongs in 1946.

The premier races run at the track were the Playfair Mile, Spokane Derby, and Inland Empire Marathon.ClosedThe facility assets were auctioned in March 2004 and it was demolished shortly after.The 63acre site was bought by the city of Spokane in 2004 for $6.3 million, with the intent of partnering with Spokane County for a new sewage treatment facility. The deal soured and 48acre was sold in 2009 to SCAFCO, a steel-framing manufacturer.Now owned by The Stone Group and known as Playfair Commerce Park, the site comprises 11 industrial lots. Large metal silhouettes of race horses mark the entrance to the park.Ferris FieldFerris Field, a wooden baseball park, was adjacent to the west of the track. Built in 1936, and was the home of the minor league Spokane Indians through the 1956 season. A fire destroyed the grandstand in October 1948, and the stadium was rebuilt with steel in 1949. It hosted high school football in 1948 and 1949, between the condemnation of Gonzaga Stadium and the opening of Joe Albi Stadium in 1950 (as "Spokane Memorial Stadium").
