  • Purchased great seats..watched the race at the actual track vs televised. Beautiful area. Great assortment of vendors..food and souvenirs.
  • It is always fun to visit the track. I usually only go a few times per season. The give always are good, it is excellent to bring a cooler (just no glass) and they have a kids area. It is fun with friends or family.
  • Fun place to spend the day! Betting is easy to do, and finding a good view is even easier. Lots of options for food and activities during the summer months.
  • Always fun to visit the track. We only go a few days each season, but it's never a disappointment. Horses aside, the track has great food, great music, and great people watching. Fun with friends as well as family. Something for everyone.
  • There is nothing better than a nice summer day at the track! If you haven't done it, I would highly recommend it. I like weekdays because they are not as crowded and It's much easier to get a table at 7am and parking at 11. It's fun to place small bets on horses, even if you know nothing about horse racing. Because even those that claim to know, lose money! Small town charm at its finest, no wonder people have been doing this for generations.
