  • This is a pretty decent racetrack, the casino is slightly depressing but overall it was a good time and I enjoyed the ostrich races held here. This is also the side for jazz fest.
  • We had a lot of fun here. The venue was clean snd comfortable.
  • Walked here to go to jazz fest and it was fun! Large fairgrounds.
  • The races are a great way to spend a sunny afternoon outdoors strategizing on your winning picks. Decent people watching an added bonus!
