“V stewart tx”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

This place was awesome. We had a blast. We went Fri. And Saturday. Had the best fun. You can stand on the rail as horses go by. There were kids playing and having a good time. Can't wait to go again.....

Parking convenient, good seating, good view. We were lucky and won a couple of races. Concessions conveniently located. Would go again!

“Fun afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Wonderful day at the races. We were able to find good seats even though it was very crowded. Valet parking was a must.

“We came We Saw”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Not ever having been to a horse race we decided this was a must stop. We were lucky in that there was a race about to start as we arrived. Over in 17 secs. But interesting none the less. There is quite a break between races so we wandered inside to view the rest of the place. The concession area is concrete very much like a ballpark. There is a casino there also. We lost our $2 bucks at the slots and wandered out. There is smoking allowed inside and so we reeked when we left! Worth a look see.
