  • Landmark with a refined building and a garden dotted with marble sculptures of race that gives a very pleasant environment and will lead to the places where on weekends you can see thoroughbred horse races.

  • Very beautiful place, you don't pay anything. Important enter the site and see the horse racing dates. The till to make bets. Other than that it has a very nice Casino there, but there's only electronic machines, there's no table games and do not accept real. The Casino is pretty cool, got buffet 24hrs and many machines

  • Love this place, but I noticed on this trip that the place has started to go downhill a bit. The bathrooms weren't clean; there was no soap in bathrooms, and many of the machines didn't work properly or had broken parts or buttons. Still a good time, just surprised about upkeep.
  • For me, a racetrack should be like Palermo -- a good track needs to have some kind of tradition behind it .. in the buildings, in the trees and grass, in the amenities for guests, If it is just a big cash register with old hags and bums lining the fence hoping their 50 cent bet will pay off a thousand bucks, it's a bummer. Only good track is a pretty track. I have spoken! :) Cheers.
  • Classic horse race track with waiters in white jackets who bring you your drinks and a beautiful central building forming the main stands. Racing several days/nights a week, low entry fee and thus well worth a visit
  • The perefect place to enjoy food festival while seeing horses races
  • Very nice neighborhood. Food & fun unlimited.
