This was my first experience at a race track. The races were exciting and the horses were beautiful. Betting was convenient. Food and beverages were readily available. It was Family Day and we went with relatives including children.

I love going to the Horse Races in Fort Erie, it's is one of the most beautiful race tracks in the world, the most beautiful in North America. They keep the grounds so beautiful, with all those flowers and the 3 little ponds in the infield, it is lovely! This Race Track is the Grande Dame fo Horse Racing history... More

I really enjoyed my experience on Aug 17th and 19th. The food marlket has a good selection for the price. There are also artists present during and after the race that adds to the pleasure

we only hope and pray that despite all governmental obstacles, this lovely track, movie site of "Black Stallion," makes it into 2014.... the horses ain't so hot but the competition is... Fort Erie deserves a better fate... shame on rico 7207 for his skepticism, my guess is he lost what he considers a bundle...

This 100 year old track is the home of the Prince of Wales Stakes. It merits preserving. This is just a short drive (less than a half hour) from the scenic grandeur of Niagara Falls. Take in a day at the races.

Not the best horses in the Country to be wagering your money on.They do not ever run to form according to their past stats in the racing form and are so bad at times, that you would swear these races are fixed and bet on by owners and trainers. I'll never go back again.

Fort Erie Race Track is only minutes from Buffalo and easily assessable for Canadians by the "QE". It is considered one of the most picturesque race tracks with great landscaping and large grandstand and plenty of tellers. For eating there is a formal dining room and a buffet, but I prefer the BBQ stand, great hot dogs, hamburgers and fries.... More

We have been many times over the years and have always had a great time. Sadly it does not appear this landmark will be with us much longer. it truly is a shame.

Not much else to say. At the end of race season this year they closed for good. Too bad. Rumors around town are that a developer is going to put in a car race track, which would be a horrible noise/pollution factor. What they COULD and SHOULD do is to renovate it into a world class horse venue for shows.... More
