From what I can find on the net: Longhorn Downs, Inc., received a Class 2 horse racetrack license in 1989. The company originally planned to construct a $35 million facility in Round Mountain. In late 1999, the Commission was made aware of a proposed complete stock purchase by Austin Jockey Club, Ltd. That
change of ownership is awaiting Commission consideration, pending the completion of background checks by the Department of Public Safety.

I have a few ground based photos of the site I took a few weeks ago. Basically the track is all grown over, and the metal railing around the track are all that is there.
