Always a great trip! Spend some time enjoying the AZ sunshine and seeing the great horses. The drinks are inexpensive, and even if you are not a horse racing aficionado it's still a great day. Spend a few bucks testing you luck!

Great views of the track, reasonable prices on food and drinks including beer. Staff was very helpful with betting and explaining to new people to horse racing. No complaints

Stopped in with some friends to watch the horse races and grab a bite to eat. Casual atmosphere with betting (on the horse races) and plenty of seats with tables to watch the races and grab some grub. Burgers, sandwiches, salads.
