Former South Tucson dog track sells for $9 million

In recent years, Tucson Greyhound Park operated as an off-track betting site until it closed for good in June.

Tucson investors have bought the shuttered Tucson Greyhound Park in South Tucson for just over $9 million in cash.

Equilibrium Cordova Village LLC bought the 16.7-acre site at 2601 and 2631 S. Third Ave. and 2725, 2713 and 2631 S. Fourth Ave., records from the Pima County Recorder’s Office show.

Located within South Tucson, the property is zoned to allow retail business with wholesale, warehousing, repairing and amusement enterprise or limited manufacturing, though no plans for the property have been announced.

The site also sits in an “opportunity zone“ — a designation added to the tax code in 2017 as a way to get economic development in distressed areas.

Using proceeds from an unrelated sale, investors who use those profits to develop within the zones can defer capital gains taxes.

Tucson Greyhound Park opened in 1944 and raced dogs until 2016. Since then it operated as an off-track betting site and owners announced last month that it would close in June.

The sale of the park closed June 24.
