Inaugurated in 1971 by real estate developer and racing visionary, Stephen A. Calder, the racing facility hosts the biggest racing events in the Sunshine State, including the annual "Florida Million", a $1.2 million dollar 8 race stakes program for Florida-breds taking place late in the year, and the highly popular "Summit of Speed", which has produced several Breeders' Cup champions and Eclipse Award winners since its start in 2000.

Calder Race Course also holds several overnight stakes and handicaps. Its current Graded stakes races include the Princess Rooney Handicap (Grade I), plus the Carry Back Stakes, La Prevoyante Handicap and the Smile Sprint Handicap (Grade II).
