“V stewart tx”
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!

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”
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.
