“You Can Horse Around Here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

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. What's great about Calder is that you can see the horses and jockey's, "up close." You can bet as little as you like, or nothing at all. Grand Stand entrance is free.

Come out and enjoy the thrill of a day at the races!

“Improved, still not as nice as Gulfstream park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

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.
The meet at Calder is of mid level, the facility is old but again, some improvements were made to make it more appealing to visitors.
It is a typical racetrack, you go for the horses, unlike Gulfstream Park were you can also follow the races from an outside bar, while your wife shops or window shops in the Village of Gulfstream.

“Nice place to play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

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.
