“Howdy race fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

This track is located just off 167 real easy to find as you can see it from the freeway. Parking free however the free lots are a bit of a walk. Spend the 7 bucks and get preferred parking you'll win it back I'm sure. 10 bucks for valet however I'm just not that high filuten. Admission free for military (me) or before you go sign up online for their member card 2 dollars off the admission and 10 percent off at the extensive gift store. The facility is great new and clean. We ate at the restaurant great prices compared to santa anita. They have just the dirt track but they run1 mile and sprints. I think if you go you'll have a great time and I noticed that on the table tvs they have a cartoon channel for the kiddies. Good luck and bet on the grey!

“Fun place to hang out if it's sunny!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

You can either spend the minimum and get front row views of the races (which is fun) or pay as much extra as you like and get lots of amazing experiences - from having a party in your own private viewing box with friends or seeing the horses and riders up close and personal to having a picnic on the grass! Make sure it's the season for live races though!

“Always a Good Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A visit to Emerald Downs is always a great way to spend an afternoon whether you want to bet on the horses or just look. Covered seating, lots of food options and action everywhere you look

“Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Me and my wife had breakfast at the café. It's at the end of the race track. Kind of a cafeteria style place. We both enjoyed our breakfast very much I had an omelette and she had Pam and eggs. Good prices. We will definitely go back. Fun to watch the horses from there.
