Hastings Racecourse Hastings Racecourse - Excitement, Bet on it! Hastings Racecourse is a jewel of a park located just four kilometres from downtown Vancouver with a spectacular view of the North Shore mountains and Burrard Inlet. Facing this grand stage, an expansive, tiered grandstand provides multiple outdoor and indoor viewing options. Proceed through the spacious facility to find a new experience at every turn. Simulcast video monitors flicker with images from around the world. Relax in a pub setting, or enjoy “first class” treatment in a box seat. Overlooking it all, a luxurious restaurant fit for the sport of Kings and Queens. It’s more than a day out with friends, it’s an ultimate experience! The only Live thorobred racetrack in the Lower Mainland, Hastings Racecourse operates from April until November, with live race days generally falling on Saturday/Sunday and Holiday Mondays. Gaming Floor With the recent addition of our gaming floor, Hastings offers even more entertainment options. All Hastings slot machines are coinless and use TITO (ticket in, ticket out) technology. In late 2008 the completion of our permanent gaming floor will bring over 600 slot machines, more dining options and a spectacular entertainment lounge.
