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.

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.

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...
