Staff go out of their way to make everything easy for placing bets, and providing an enjoyable experience. Very relaxing way to spend a day picking favorite horses by name, or by stats for experienced fans.

I have been to alot of tracks in the US and Canada over the years, This is a unique place. It is a little out of its prime but had good attendance overall and was a great afternoon.

The building looks tired and in sore need of some updating, and there's narrow old-fashioned turnstile entry before you get to the pretty landscaping and such flowerbeds. Inside it's all very shabby, with dated seating, old-fashioned tv's and grungy carpets. Food is actually surprisingly good.not...More

I would not take children under 13 to the track that day. Will be very crowded because it is both Kentucky Derby Day as well as Cinqo de Mayo. Could get a bit rowdy.
