At Turf Paradise, we value our horse owners as they enhance our product with the running of their horses. Our location in Phoenix, Arizona proves to be the "jewel in the desert" as we have mild winters, many days in the 60s, and lots of sunshine, making our racing meet attractive. This section is to help our owners, both in state and out, with details to make horse ownership at Turf Paradise a pleasant experience.
