“Great Track! Beautiful Place!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This really is a great horse track! Nice, nice place...and they are currently expanding it and doing some renovations! Very nice, just wish they ran the ponies a little more frequently!!!

“fun”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Its a fun place to go, make some small bets, and cheer for your horse to win! Food is a little pricey, but not too bad.

“Its OK”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Its OK but the casino is lacking. didn't get offered free drinks while I gave away my money.
Restaurants were closed but one, which had a short menu. Smoking in the casino is also bad.

“Casino”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This is a moderately fun casino, but the slot machines were sort of lame, and they didn't have any of the really entertaining ones like "Wizard of Oz."

“Great race experience”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

We did the Triple Crown circuit this year, preceded by a stop in Hot Springs for the Arkansas Derby in early April. It was a fabulous experience, and to tell you the truth we had a better time at Oaklawn than at Churchill Downs or Belmont. Don't miss it! Lots of similarities to Saratoga - friendly people, lots of sights to see, good restaurants.
