“Great time for the buggy races”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Haven't been here for almost 30 years. Always enjoyed the races and believe it or not most of the time I came home ahead of the game. Always nice when you win and at the time I always kept up with the winning horses.

“Go during race season”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

It is rare to find such a fun place - with a unique entertainment in the middle of a beautiful charming city. Stay for dinner at the downtown pizza place called Starting Gate - it adds to the extra enjoyment.

“Not as nice as I though it would be”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The building is very dated and very dirty. The staff is not organized and the place smells like smoke a lot!

“Noisy, grungy gambling”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

I was disappointed. I had looked forward to watching horses racing. Instead it was noisy, old grungy booths, smoke filled and the glass was dirty so that it was difficult to see the race. I don't recommend it unless you are really into the gambling.
