Very nice racetrack and casino. The service was good in all areas. Adult beverages are expensive...$5.50 for a draft beer. Food was above average and only a little overpriced. Our trip was during the off season so it was not crowded.

Visited on April 14th for the Arkansas Derby. With general admission being free and parking only $2.00, it was one of the most affordable attractions I've ever visited. I also wanted to visit the newer American Pharaoh statue, which I did - loved it! It...More
