We go here about once a year with my parents, my brother and his family. We're not big gamblers but we all usually put down (ie - lose) a few bucks with each visit and always enjoy ourselves. The building is not a dump by any means and has always had plenty of seating each time we visited. There is... More

The horses were beautiful. The people watching was great fun. Entrance fees were $3 for adult general admission. We went in a group had had a great day at the races. Brochures at entrance do a great job of explaining how to wager for those that need the help (like me).

Had a few extra hours to spend so we drove out to the horse races. While adults can gamble, it's also a fun family outing. Races ran about every 20 minutes. Nice indoor seating or outdoors by the action. $3 admittance fee ($2 seniors and under 17 are fee) is reasonable and parking was free. About 10-15 minutes out of... More
