“Live horse races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Love that we are able to enjoy the live races up close and personal. You can go right to the finish line and see the jockeys and horses. Lots of fun.

“A GREAT DAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We have visited before and this trip was just as good. restaurant was busy but food good and we had a table at the winning line.
The staff are friendly and could not do enough..........if you are in the area it is worth a visit.

“a day at the races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This property gives very good rates to horsemen & players. We found this Holiday Inn Express to be clean, a good value and a property we will use again. Great rates, first class accomodations and a free hot breakfast. Its a winner!

“A great family experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The folks at TBD really know how to do it right. Being a horseman, I've seen quite a few grand stands in my day and the Downs do a great job of keeping the people coming through the doors. Lots of free stuff, kids day on Sundays with pony rides etc. Food is decent for a racetrack too! The only thing missing is a playground like the one they have at Canterbury Park in Shakopee.

“Great day at the races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Great way to spend an occasional day. Can go stand right at the finish line. Beautiful horses less than 5 ft away. Clean, decent food, and if you limit your amount to bet an inexpensive day of entertainment
