The casino was better than i expected. Dinner at Fortunes was decent - twin lobster tails cooked just right and saw the harness race right outside the restaurant.

I went with a friend who has been visiting the track for 20+ years. It's a good thing because we were able to get a great picnic table. He went early in the morning (somewhere around 7-8 am) and placed our chairs and a tablecloth to "reserve" our table. It's amazing, but NO ONE touches your stuff you leave. When... More

Whether you love horse racing or just people watching, go to the track! You can find whatever you like here, from hotdogs to upscale menus, bleachers to tablecloths, people in tanks and shorts to people in suits and dressy hats. It's all here!

What a great way to spend a day or more. Beautiful race track, many things to enjoy in the track area. Parking is kinda crazy, we parked in the free lot and biked over to the track. Even if you get there early parking is mobbed. Once inside, getting up close to the track is easy before the race. The... More

The track was clean and well kept. Seating had good views and betting was easy and close to settings. I don't like the horses going around twice on the smaller track. If you are a fan of thoroughbred horse racing, this isn't for you.

We went for a work event and saw a couple races and a lot of fun. I also played some slot machines for a couple minutes before we had to leave and won some money. Overall a fun time.
