Calder Race Track is a great way to spend and afternoon enjoying the power and majesty of race horses. The excitment builds as the jockey's leave the paddock and circle around the gardens before entering the race track itself.

The racetrack is in Miami and has been improved in the last 10 years. It doesn't have the sophisticated appeal of Gulfstream Park, but it's a good place if you like horseracing.

Great buffet! I love that they post the average slot payout percentages; They are in line with the Vegas strip slots. Live racing and simulcast for anywhere in the country.This is a Churchill Downs track.
