“Fun Fun Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The food is excellent and it is fun just to get out and do something different. You can sit inside or in the blechers, it can be cool in the blechers sometimes but most of the time it is lovely and you have a great view of the race the tote board and if you pay a little extra you can sit right down front but everywhere in the blechers is good and if you would like to do a little gambling you can go inside
. Have bought tickets to go when it opens. looking forward to it.

“Picnic Area”

If you go try the picnic area. Its free it has betting windows and best of all you can bring in your own food and bevs. Not like a typical race track experience, bring the kids and get a suntan

“Plenty of betting windows”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Had no trouble getting to the betting windows, plenty of them open and working. Lots of variety in the choice of which race or type you wanted to watch as they were televised from different parks. Food was average.
