Good day but you need the weather. Very pricey but worth it if you have a flutter and win. Drinks are expensive but that is like all Race courses.
We received a 'day at the races' voucher as a gift. It was a really enjoyable day, and we would highly recommend it.
Gets flooded a lot. But nice track. They normally leave the gate open So people can relax on the grass or run alongside the track
