Refunds To Be Given To All Ticket Purchasers

HOUSTON, TX (September 1st, 2017)— Amid the devastation caused to the greater Houston area, as well as the entire Texas coast, Sam Houston Race Park ( has decided to cancel this years’ CCA Texas Concert for Conservation planned for September 9th.


It is at this time we feel as if there are more important points of focus in the lives and minds of Houstonians and all of those affected by this tragic event. We also would like to take this time to thank our first responders and give appreciation to all of those who are helping, donating, and caring for their neighbors in a time of need. It is because of the courage and resilience of our community and it’s citizens that we are confident that Houston will rebound strongly.


Customers that purchased CCA tickets with a credit card will automatically be refunded within 3-5 business days.  Customers that purchased with cash can visit the Player Services desk at Sam Houston Race Park to receive their refund. Our facilities are located at 7575 North Sam Houston Pkwy W, Houston, TX 77064. To speak to a SHRP representative, please call 281-807-8700.



The 6th annual concert originally slated for September 9th, was set to feature The Eli Young Band, along with Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, and Ray Wylie Hubbard. We would like to give a special thank you to The Eli Young Band for their understanding in this time of dire need with additional thanks going out to all the bands, Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, and Ray Wylie Hubbard, for agreeing to the cancellation and to let Houstonians begin the healing process. Additionally, we’d like to thank CCA Texas for being a great partner and agreeing to bring the show back next year. Sam Houston Race Park has full intentions of restoring the annual CCA Texas Concert for Conservation in 2018.


Our hosting of the September 23rd Food Truck Festival, the 15th Annual ZiegenBock Music Festival on October 14th, and Something Wicked on October 28 & 29th will go ahead as scheduled. Simulcast wagering will still be offered daily.
