You don't have to gamble there is even the excitement of picking the winning horse. But if you want to gamble $2.00 can get you a pick. If you love horses you would enjoy this.

great for the whole family. You can visit the paddock and check out the horses or take the children to the small petting zoo. There is a great restaurant on the second floor, or you can get smaller bites at the kiosks downstairs.

We had a sales trade show here. Good facility overall. A little dated but the staff is very eager to help all over the board. Lots of parking and the food and beverages are top notch.
