On 18 July 1947 it became the first course in Britain to stage an evening fixture while on 8 May 1971 the racecourse became the first to hold a morning meeting. These innovations would become commonplace for racecourses around the country.The present racecourse opened in 1926 and since 1973 it has been owned by the Hamilton Park Trust which reinvests all profits into developing the course. In 2015 Hamilton Park racecourse became the first horse racing venue in Scotland and the first small independant racecourse in the UK to offer free customer Wi-Fi.
