Many people were dressed casual, however quite.a few were dressed up. Wife n I dressed it and made a day of it. Took photos. Had drinks and bet on games. Drinks were not very expensive. Granville...

What a great way to spend a scorching day in Vancouver! Reserve a table at Silks, sit in air conditioned comfort, enjoy the better than average buffet and watch the horses run. We even got to see the Weiner Dog Races! An event you do not want to miss!

Having only been to the Del Mar racetrack previously, I really did not know what to expect. This track was very nice and not nearly as crowded as Del Mar. The box seating for 6 was only $30 total for the day and included a server that came around for drinks and food. The window staff was very helpful for... More

I have never been to the horse races before and now I am so glad I did. What a blast! We went for my cousins 30th birthday party and it was a great time had by all. I lost money but it was a great time betting on all my favourite horse names. There were a few food trucks there... More

What really impressed us was the fabulous staff...Right from the beginning, we were led to our private box , given free programs, and were given tips on... More

I visited the Hastings Park racecourse as an evening out arranged by my employer for the staff. The camaraderie was fun but the venue was cramped and the food mediocre. I am not a gambler so I did not enjoy the betting side of it.

We took my mother over to watch the horse races for an early mother's day surprise. We booked reservations for the buffet at Silk's and although the views are fantastic, we were disappointed that they had ignored our request to sit on an upper tier. They placed us on the bottom tier right next to an exterior door which the... More

The enthusiasim was contagious. Food, although not great was fine. There was plenty to see, not just the track. I enjoyed watching the horses being led around before the race. It was a great day so staying outside was not a problem. Washrooms were well labeled.
