Interestingly, the track contained a drive-in cinema during the 1980s, which attracted crowds to the Races as a result.

2004 was another key date in the history of this track as the Tasmanian Government redeveloped the venue to include a Harness and Greyhounds track.

The track has been named a few times in the time, such as Tattersall's Park, UBET Park and Luxbet Park.
