While on holiday in Canada a friend asked if we would like to go to a race track, not being gamblers and having never been to one before we said yes to his invite. And what a most enjoyable day out it was, our friend mentioned that years ago this track was very popular and people travelled from miles around... More

This is a admission free place to visit and I had a wonderful time betting a small amount of money (minimum bet $2). I also liked that they had places outside where you could sit and have a drink and watch the game at individual patio tables. (Beer and Wine reasonable) and also offered food. I am so glad that...

Still the prettiest track in Ontario, but prefer it back in its hay day. They run a very short season now with 2 days per week. Without a casino being allowed there, it has become less and less attended and cared for.

Large beautifully landscaped racetrack. Came for farmers market. Not many vendors however. Besides horseracing, not much else to do here.

Well this past Sunday Aug 9, 2015 was quite the surprise. I have never seen the Security Guards in such a huff. Being Canadian, I am so happy our Security Guards don't carry guns as I believe this past Sunday they would have taken them out. For years going I have never seen signs posted that dogs are not allowed... More

My family used to make a day at the races an annual event. Thirty years ago it was a fun, dress-up kind-of event. Today it is very different but for anyone who likes horse races I would recommend a visit to Fort Erie. It's a B track but still a fun afternoon. They even have a craft and food market.

Great day at the track. The weather was hot, the food was great and the beer was cold. This is one of the best and well kept horse racing traps in Canada.

The Fort Erie Race Track is a fantastic place to bring your friends for the day. They also have special events going on and Arts & Crafts. A lot to explore at the Race Track.
