A nice place to spend the day wagering on simulcast racing. Live horse racing may be available Oct to Feb. Food and drink prices are reasonable and food is good.

Love visiting for some horse racing. I don't go outside of the live racing season. Would love to see longer season and different racing days/times but a good experience for the day.

On Labor Day 2013, our family gathered for a fun & affordable afternoon at the horse races. Many of us had never been to this venue near the Columbia River, in Portland, Oregon. Arriving early is recommended, if table seating is needed. There are people...More

Kid friendly, however, there is drinking and smoking right around the kids so if you don't like that this isn't a good family outing. On the flip side if you don't want kids tripping over you there are places to get away from them. The...More

Don't just go and sit in a seat. Get down to the saddling enclosure and see the horses and all the folks that make racing possible. If you want the full treatment rent a booth up in the Turf club and enjoy the buffet and...More
