This famed 350-acre racetrack features thoroughbred horseracing during its six-week season from late July through early September. Though one of the sport's premier events, the races often take second place to people-watching.

Attended a business function with access to a suite and a private tour of the grounds. Even got to be in the booth for the call of the 6th race. Didn't place a bet but had a good experience.

A modern trip to a time gone by. Historic old track is like no other. Old wooden grandstand is tastfully modernized without losing character

Even though I only get to the track once a year, I just love watching the horses race. One of the prettiest tracks with plenty of food options and family friendly.

I would highly recommend the 45 min walking tour. It is well worth the $3.00. My mom and I attended the 11:30 tour. At times it was hard to hear our tour guide due to the announcements, however it is part of the racing experience.

That depends on the amount of races. Weekdays are usually 9 races and weekends between 10-12. There are 32 minutes between races most days other than the big stakes races. So count on around 5;30 on weekdays and add an hour... More
