Quite a scenic track, with good table seats inside the second and third floor restaurants. Food is good and not expensive. Free parking and admission. Nice way to spend the afternoon.

Great place to spend the afternoon during the racing season (Oct-may). $1 admission, seniors free on Mon & Tues. Plenty of open-air grandstand to sit out of the sun if so inclined. Easy to get to and generally not crowded.

I would not take children under 13 to the track that day. Will be very crowded because it is both Kentucky Derby Day as well as Cinqo de Mayo. Could get a bit rowdy.
