“Company function - excellent choice and lots of fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We held our Christmas party here and what a great choice of venue. Over the years we have tried different venues, this is the best so far.

We had the 'Director's Suite' which was a private room with a view of the track. We had our own betting station and bar and the most wonderful buffet. The food was served on time and was very well prepared. Everyone raved about the meal. The staff were helpful and friendly, we could not have asked for more.

Whether you bet or not it gave everyone something to do. Watching, betting, cheering everyone had fun and raved as to what a fun time they had. With the room rental came an opportunity to have a couple of people go down and have their picture taken with the winner of 'our' race - one raced is named after your company (or person) which is printed in the program and on the odds board.

It wasn't overly pricey when you consider the meal and entertainment. We will definately be coming again for future events.

“Expo Centre trade show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This very large modern facility is a great exhibition hall. The conference I attended used just one wing which was near a food court with good lunch alternatives. The rooms and seating where comfortable. There was parking very nearby and on that day there was no charge.

“Races”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We celebrated my husband's 75th birthday there and they did an excellent job. His name was on the program and up in lights on the odds board just before his special race. We also got to have our picture taken in the winners circle. We find the food there to be very consistantly good.

“Brunch at the Horse Races”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Once a year we meet friends for brunch at Colours restaurant and thoroughly enjoy an afternoon of betting on colors, jockeys or buggy wheels. Lots of laughter, decent food and fun guessing who will win this time

“Need more harness racing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Service is very slow in colors. Hard to get reservations at times...and then when you do get in there are many empty tables. Prices are too high, food is not that great, They need a better menu. Waste of space in the upper seats that are outside.
