The Legacy of Jerry Simms and Turf Paradise
Self-made Arizona businessman, real estate mogul and philanthropist, Jerry Simms is celebrating the 62nd anniversary of his beloved race track, Turf Paradise.
Turf Paradise opened its doors Jan. 7, 1956, making history as the first organized professional sports franchise in Arizona.
Hosting only five owners in over 50 decades, Simms purchased the track in 2000 and invested in a multimillion dollar renovation including a state-of-the-art equine pool for the training and therapy of the nearly 2, 000 horses that call Turf Paradise home.
The 30-foot by 60-foot equine pool provides advanced horse therapy for thoroughbreds housed on the backside of the track. Containing more than 140, 000 gallons of water and measuring 12 feet in depth, the pool accommodates up to six horses at a time and has contributed to equine health and field size.
Additionally, Simms invested in the re-style of the main track, Clubhouse and Turf Club adding two race book-style betting carrels including 80 private terminals, one located in the Clubhouse and the other adjacent to the Turf Club.

Although Simms’s efforts to the development and renovation of Turf Paradise have successfully turned the track into the third largest sporting attraction in Arizona, one would argue that his greatest contributions to the track have been the personal, family-friendly investments he has continued to incorporate into the Turf Paradise ...
