Embedded within the 487-acre Los Angeles County fairgrounds in Pomona, California, the “biggest little track in America” called Fairplex Park bloomed into a tradition in 1922, with harness racing and chariot racing. It was the first to offer pari-mutuel wagering in 1933, as soon as it was legalized in California, which made attendance leap from 100,000 to 334,759. Since then, Fairplex has hosted 13 million, even boasting a record-breaking, staggering $113,919,743 handle wagered at the 2006 L.A. County Fair.

There was a short break during WWII in which the fairgrounds were used for supporting the war, and then, in 1985, the racetrack was expanded to 5/8 mile. One year later, the grandstand and clubhouse were revamped, adding lighting to the mix.

Due to a previous naming rights dispute over Barrett’s Sales and Racing horse facility plus the (now closed) 5/8 mile racetrack, the Los Angeles County Fair Association managed to reach an agreement with Barrett’s in February 2013, and the race meet was thus renamed "Barrett's Race Meet at Fairplex." In 2014, the Fairplex race meet got relocated to the Los Alamitos Race Course, and a White Avenue OTB Racebook currently takes racing signals from northern American countries and Australia.
