Typical of most casinos, noise and smoke, but the OK Corral smoke-free area, was indeed smoke free and a welcome respite from the larger casino area. The slot variety wasn't as good as other areas, but it was adequate. The Sports Bar and Grill was good...nice variety on the menu and TV's at every table with a wide channel selection. One the second floor, it was above most of the smoke, though the noise was still pretty loud. I drowned out the slot machine noise with the TV volume!They did have all-you-can-eat crab legs on the Epic Buffet, but we weren't that hungry. The food court was in the middle of the main casino--too loud and smokey to sit and eat.
At the track we stayed outside, except to bet, so the smoke was not an issue. Sadly, a crash result in a two jockeys down and one horse being euthanized. The track staff put up a barrier to shield the horse and medics from the crowd. One jockey was taken in an ambulance. The track staff is a good job of clearing the track and rounding up two loose horses without further incident. The staff in the betting area were very polite and helpful to this novice better. The race card was 9 races, a little over three hours. However, you can easily come and go between the casino and track area.
