We took our autistic son here during family day. They have family day in the center of the track with loads of carnival rides and entertainment. About the one thing is they shut down the rides during the races so not to distract the horses. Yet, once a race is done, they rides are right back up and running. Very... More

My husband has always want to visit this race track. The grounds were BEAUTIFUL. We went on a Friday and there wasn't much of a crowd at all. Very surprised, Saturday & Sunday must be their big days. We recommend getting the Farriers package. Very good value. Club house entry, box seats, free food and drink. One per ticket. The... More

We went with an educational trip in mind as neither my wife nor I have been to the race track before and we had our two kids with us. Watched a couple YouTube videos, attended the free seminar before the racing started, and after 2.5 hours and multiple small wagers on 4 races we left with $2.20 less in the... More

This is one of our favorite stops when visiting California. The atmosphere is fun, the seating is very comfortable with multiple types of seating available, and they even have kiosks where you can learn how to bet on the races if you are not familiar with it. There is club house seating available also. The views are outstanding, the food... More

This track is good. We have only 1 or 2 others to compare it to. The weather this weekend was excellent. We had box seats but found food on the second level to be more appealing. The food on Level 3 with our seats was OK but did not appeal to us. We got a hot dog and it was... More

The race track overall was clean enough, and the staff we interacted with were very helpful. It isn't anything special, but if you want to spend an afternoon at the races, this isn't a bad place to do that.
