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.

Spending a day at the track is great, even if you're not betting! The horses are beautiful and watching them is entertainment enough. If you do want to bet, I suggest sitting at the picnic tables, and going in to see the races you're most excited about. It's less crowded and there are plenty of screens to watch the races.

A terrific place to visit! We go every summer! The grounds are so well groomed & lots of history. Not only are the races fun, but it's a great place to spend the day with friends, family, & bring a picnic! Even better if you go early in the morning around 7:30, it's the best - & no charge! You can see the horses train up close. Every year I am always amazed at how friendly the jockeys are as they often stop to chat along the rail with the horses. It's a must see for sure!

I have been going to the "The Track for 30 Years " Real Charm and great tables under the trees with Monitors to watch the race on . Picnic tables and the People watching as well. Lot's of good food vendors .
Come early in the " marn" to reserve a good table for friends . Like opening is a must at 6 AM.
Arts and craft sellers throughout the track .
After the races , the " Best Pizza and Rock Bands" only at the Horsehoe , right around the corner.
Want to eat in style , new place is SIrro's definitely 5 star . Can't miss this is Elegance .
The August Place to be was the theme about 25 years back. Wonderful Track .

We were there off season but on a saturday night, we got a chance to bet on the harness races - few crowds and got to stand right next to the track!
