Owner description: This famed 350-acre racetrack features thoroughbred horseracing during its six-week season from late July through early September. Though one of the sport's premier events, the races often take second place to people-watching.

Having vendors outside the track was fun. Admission to the track is cheap, parking is limited. Lots of food choices and even food trucks!

The track is busy and fun! Overall it's a great atmosphere for a day or weekend with friends. You can bring your own food and drinks, or order something there. Try their "Sloppy Track" milkshake- delicious!

We had a good time anyhow! Great place to people watch! All things considered, everything is very clean and all the workers are pleasant! Must do if visiting during the Summer!

The racetrack is a perfect day to enjoy - you can do it expensively or moderately - and still have a wonderful day. General admission is about $3 - you can bring your own picnic and chairs - you have all the access to everything. Or you can go top end, dress up and sit in the club house restaurants. It is an awesome day - even without betting! Visit the paddock area between races to see the horses and jockey's getting ready for the race. Lots of vendors stands for food, beverages and gifts. Take a walk out to rail for a few races - it gets pretty lively out there!
Parking is available all around the area for about $10-15. It is a really fun day!

Loved spending two afternoons at the track. The atmosphere at the racetrack is like a festival. Plus, it's the best horse racing during the month of august
