Delaware Park Race Track, also known by its moniker DelPark, is an American horse racetrack, casino, and golf course located in Stanton, Delaware. Delaware Park Racetrack was built and designed by William du Pont, Jr. and opened in 1937.

Up until today, it is still the only racetrack in the state of Delaware for thoroughbreds. Furthermore, Delaware Park cards Arabian races regularly, and the only mid-Atlantic track to do it, seeing that Arabian population is strong in this area.

The track has become home and hub to many winners that attend major circuits in New York, Florida and Kentucky, such as near-Triple Crown winner Afleet Alex and Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, and Xtra Heat, among others.

Unlike Parx Racing (formerly Philadelphia Park Racetrack), Laurel Park Racecourse, Pimlico Race Course, Charles Town, Mountaineer and Colonial Downs, Delaware Park does not run conjointly with them but rather as a stand-alone racetrack. Thus, off-season might see Florida-based horses spending summer at this venue.

Among the amenities found at Delaware Park are simulcasts of races from other sites, live wagering and casino houses with slots; there is also betting on NFL games, but the latter is allowed only on Parlay Cards with multiple teams, not for individual games. Table games include blackjack, craps, keno, pai gow poker, poker varieties, roulette, etc. An 18-hole, par 72 golf course completes the picture offered by Delaware Park.

Important annual races at Delaware Park Racetrack include: Grade I Delaware Handicap, Grade II Delaware Oaks, and Grade III Barbaro Stakes and Endine Stakes.
