This was a true delight. Not many places offer this site to behold. Wonderful. It does not take much time either. You can just drive up, sit in your car, watch the horses for a minute, and then leave. It is perfect.

Cheap and quick breakfast at the Harness Track cannot be beat. Want a quick eggs and pancakes breakfast but don't want to pay resort prices? Come down to the Track! It's a little bit of a walk from the resort, but a pleasant one that takes you down the first hole of Number 1 down to the horse stables. It... More

My wife is a huge horse lover and we love stopping by the Harness Track for their special events or just the morning cart warm ups. It has a fun, peaceful atmosphere.

I have to agree with John and his comments on the restaurant, a great place to grab some good food at great prices. As Arnold would say, "I'll be back".

Small, white, concrete, noisy to loud. An exceptional piece of Americana right here in Pinehurst. If you don't eat breakfast at the track, you don't know what real breakfast can be - eggs your way, pancakes, sausage, scrapple, you name it - all with race track names. Great, great place for breakfast.

If harness racing is your thing, it's smoething to do besides golf in the area. Best breakfasts in town. Not fancy, but good food.
