  • TBD is a very well-maintained horse track with a great small/moderately-sized poker room. While most of the structure itself is very old, the grounds and the buildings are kept up nicely, unlike some ...  more »
  • A friend and I went on a weekday afternoon. Enjoyed seeing the excitement in real life rather than on TV. Had a fairly inexpensive hot for lunch. It was fun and a cheap afternoon out.  more »

  • Love the horse racing. Hosts the annual Tampa Bay Derby and Sam F Davis Stakes. Both races feature Kentucky Derby hopefuls and top trainers and jockeys. Turf course is immaculate. Needs to do more to attract and retain younger fan base. The track's Mobil Wagering Account App does not function on busy days when wagering lines are longest.
  • Went to a delightful corgi race at Tampa Bay Downs, having never been before for the usual races or events. Parking wasn't​ too bad, and there are lots of places inside to get drinks and food. Entry fee was only 5 bucks.
  • Staff is always great.. foods good for the price..... maybe a spread game? 2_20 4-40
  • Great place to spend a day. Having never been before I asked some people that I sat near to explain the process, after getting a few tips I made my first wager and walked away with $20! I was in the Garden Suite which had its own separate bar and betting booth. Bathrooms inside the club house were clean. Definitely planning on coming back here again for a casual day date.
  • Had a fun time placing small bets on the horses. There are a few options for food. You can pay an extra couple dollars per person and sit upstairs at a table under shade where there is a good view.
