Calder Race Course and Casino

Calder Race Course, located in the far north of Miami-Dade County on the border with Broward County, was opened in 1971. The track consists of a one-mile (1.6 km) dirt oval and a seven-furlong turf course and has a capacity for 15,000 race fans. Racing is generally held through the summer minths from April to December.

Due to changes in Florida law, spectator sports that offer pari-mutuel betting, such as horse racing, greyhoud racing and jai alai can now offer gaming when approved by local voters. The facility is now known as Calder Casino and Race Course.

The Studz Poker Club is a 29-table card room located on the first floor of the grandstand at the west entrance, Studz Poker Club offers Texas Hold 'Em, Omaha, and 7-Card Stud. Daily and specialty tournaments are offered. Amenities include tableside food and beverage service, massage service, and pari-mutuel wagering on live and simulcast Thoroughbred racing. The minimum age to enter and play in Studz Poker Club is 18.

The Calder Casino is a Las Vegas-style, single-story slot casino with over 1,200 slot machines, including electronic blackjack, and three new restaurants.
