  • Great place to bring kids. There is a nice playground and lots of room for kids to run around. Coolers are welcome (not in Clubhouse though). Other than the price of parking ($5?) and admission ($4?), you won't find a cheaper place to spend a full day with your family. Plus, they have really great people that work there who are super nice and very accommodating.
  • Can't wait for it to reopen this year. It's a great day out with friends
  • It was an amazing experience working there for the day! Excellent pay, lovely people, amazing employees, everyone was really nice. I would so love to work there again, i had a blast. Met knew people. I absolutely loved it! I enjoyed every single moment of it, and the view of the racetrack and being able to have such a spectacular fron row view of the finish line was so amazing! It was honestly, by far, an unforgettable night!
  • A beautiful old racetrack full of tradition. I wish they would expand Ladies Secret it's a great spot but it's a challenge to get a table and a long wait for food service. I suppose if there was renewed interest in horse racing that would help.
  • Enjoyed myself! I liked that it wasn't too hot and I didn't have to walk too far to place my $2 bet.
