Isle Casino Racing was founded in 1964 by Fredrick Van Lennep in Pompano Park, Florida. The company operates a racino, which is a casino with horse racing facilities.
Between the years of 1970 to 1990, the racetrack was booming, with many celebrities, such as Arnold Palmer and Dave Berry, visiting regularly. Attendance began to drop, however, until Pompano simulcast both Harness and Thoroughbred races from all over the USA and Canada. This allowed patrons to watch horse racing every day of the year. The company has added slot machines and live poker, with betting limits under Florida state law.
Isle Casino Racing is a subsidiary of ElDorado Resorts. In addition to the casino, the company also has a lounge with a full bar, live entertainment, and large screen televisions for viewing sporting events.
