“A fun day for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

I have planned several events at the clubhouse, the turf club, clockers corner, and the front runner restaurant, but each caters to a different crowd, yet every time you always have a great time! I recommend planning an event at the track during the race season.

“The best horseracing expererience in the west”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Purchasing a club house pass is highly recommended as the amenities and the food are first rate. The view of the mountains from the park is terrific as is the well maintained infield. You can spend a leisurely afternoon wagering and enjoying food and drink in a great environment. The valet parking is prompt and really good.

“What a Fun Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Had a fund raiser with my old High School at the track. It was a special, $25 covered food, a place at the table, t-shirt, program. We were in the infield. I have been there before in the stands but this was great as you could talk and move around. Met new friends at spent $20 to win $12. It was fun to see the ponies run and to take a walk around the track. Get there early (11am) and leave around the 8th race (if you can). The weather was beautiful. A great place to people watch.

“A Fun Race Track Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

This was my first time to this track. It is very similar to other tracks around the country. Lots of smokers and compulsive gamblers. Nevertheless, a fun betting and viewing experience.

We were disappointed that the Club House restaurant was completely booked, forcing us into fast food. The setting was beautiful and the weather perfect making for a good afternoon.

“Did I say free?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Santa Anita offers free tours of the facility on weekends during the season. It was an excellent hour tour of the stables, jockey area, and track.
