“The feeling of the horses running... amazing”

Attraction details
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Where else can you watch.. and feel the horses. Nice... clean.... fun place to spend (lose) money. Upstairs is nice and there is always a place to sit. Don't forget to go outside and watch (feel) the end of a race. Amazing to feel the power of the horses.... enjoy.... put on a trifecta bet... and have an adult beverage to sooth your loses.

Definitely the cleanest race track in the country! I'm biased because I live in Houston, but what fun I've had at this track! The horses are mediocre, the purses are awful, but the friends I've made are forever. Handicapping horses is a huge challenge...it will keep you going back. Win or lose, it's the place to be on weekends.

Visited the track to watch the Thoroughbred races on a Saturday night. We arrived at 5:45 for a post time of 7:00pm and the box seats that we prefer were already sold out. Sat in the general admission seats that were comfortable.

It was a busy night and the park was not prepared for this much business. Long lines for everything. Make sure you get your bets placed before standing in line for food or drinks or you may not get it placed in time.

A different adventure, nice facility, ample parking, plenty of access to food and drinks. You can even schedule a special birthday/graduation recognition when you are down in the winner's circle with one of the horses.
