Tampa Bay Downs is a great place to see horse racing at it's best without all the crowd and cost.....Great places to sit or stand and watch the races and you can get up close to the horses and jockey's. One of the jockey's actually gave my 13 year old son a pair of his used goggles which was pretty neat and a day he'll always cherish.... Good family fun...

Very enjoyable afternoon spent watching the horse races. Very well kept facility, old but well kept. It was very fun atmosphere and there were people of every age! Even the little ones enjoyed watching the horses run. I recommend!

A glorious day of horseracing - some on the sand some on the turf. Exciting. The staff were very helpful, cheerful and accommodating. We had box seats reserved with our own tv monitor but viewed the big screen when the horses were too far away for us to see. We had an informal lunch which was tasty. valet parking a bonus. Good value.

Love that we are able to enjoy the live races up close and personal. You can go right to the finish line and see the jockeys and horses. Lots of fun.

We have visited before and this trip was just as good. restaurant was busy but food good and we had a table at the winning line.
The staff are friendly and could not do enough..........if you are in the area it is worth a visit.
