This is a very old thoroughbred horse racing track but it has it's charms. If you want to play the ponies this is the only place for live racing in Portland, OR.

A nice place to spend the day wagering on simulcast racing. Live horse racing may be available Oct to Feb. Food and drink prices are reasonable and food is good.

The new paint job and graphics are a well deserved bit of TLC for this place... and I feel like it will continue to improve in the next few years. There's plenty of potential. Cheap beer, sunny tables (or warm-enough windowed in areas), cheap food,...More
