My husband and I have enjoyed going to Canterbury for years. When we had our daughter, she was introduced to horse racing at a very early age. We now have 2 kids, and bring both with us almost every time we go.
I recommend becoming an MVP member, they will mall you tons of coupons for free admissions throughout the season. If I recall correctly, most of the food/drink stands only take cash, so bring money or a debit card for the ATM.
Patience is the key when you have young ones with. It can get crowded and moving through the pack can take a couple extra minutes with a stroller. It's totally worth any minor hassles. Our family loves watching the horses race. My 2 year old loves watching the horses before the race and picking her horse.
