Pompano Park is a 5/8 mile long Standard Harness racecourse situated in Pompano Beach, Florida. It was christened as "The Winter Home -or Capital- of Harness Racing", thanks to its favorable winter weather conditions, just 20 miles away from nearby Fort Lauderdale. It features live harness races, slots machines, live poker tables, and thoroughbred simulcasting services throughout the whole year.

The history of Pompano's racecourse begins in 1953 when Frederick Van Lennen purchased an old and decaying horse racing property in Pompano Beach. His intention was to build a top-class harness racetrack that could rival any of the northernmost racing destinations, but soon faced staunch opposition from some entities within the pari-mutuel field. It finally opened to great fanfare in 1964, and its inaugural season featured a 46-nights harness racing meet.

Pompano's extensive harness racing calendar has but only one short break that begins in the month of June and finishes in mid-August; during the live racing hiatus, harness enthusiasts can continue to enjoy multiple track broadcasts from its Simulcasting facility, located within the casino's premises. It is currently owned and managed by the El Dorado Resorts group, who recently opted to rebrand the entire venue as the Isle Casino and Racing at Pompano Park.

The Pompano harness racecourse is built from a composition of Florida clay, concrete sand and rice rock.
