Check out the horse races at cal expo. Live harness races or mixed breed during the fair including thoroughbreds. They have pretty much daily Otb betting. It's a fun time out!!

I've been here a couple of times. Everyone is so friendly. Parking is close and plentiful, unlike the track at Alameda. You can either use the computer to buy your tickets or have one of the staff help you. They keep a specific window that...More
