    To know even if you do not have idea of horse racing. If you like racing you can not let go. The place is good with great places to eat or drink.

    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
