  • I really had fun here. Beautiful prairie and perfect to friends and family to watch the horse race.
  • Nice quaint town. Several locally owned shops.
  • Glorious fun place to watch horse racing. Lovely town. Great restaurants and accommodation all around.
  • Wow! I loved this track and the area around it. Awesome turnstiles and food selection. Obviously the horses were pretty cool too.
  • This is a beautiful old racetrack. It gets very busy during racing season. So much so that homeowners charge for parking on there lawns. During a race you will see everyone is dressed in their finest. Adults and children alike will enjoy a day at the races here whether dining, drinking, or watching the ponies run.
