This is not one of the most state-of-the-art thoroughbred racing tracks I have been to in the U.S. It is a place to make some bets, grab a snack, and hang out for a couple hours. I would not call it family-friendly, interesting, or particularly...More

We really enjoy this place. We usually don't gamble much but enjoy bringing friends here to just sit, eat, talk and watch the horses. It is really neat that you can sit outside and watch the horses come in. We usually spend the entire day...More

Coming from north metro, it’s quite the drive. Not a drive I’d want to make every week, which I know is the point (trying to make gambling hard to get to). Lots of parking. I’ve only been to one other horse racing track, Retama Park...More

You can't see the backstretch!!!! The absence of enough seats outdoors. Inside it's dated and dumpy.

Racing season is short in Colorado so take advantage of the racing while you can. Inexpensive entertainment, food and drink prices are very reasonable and the racing is fast and fun, inexperienced betters can always ask for help from the people at the windows and...More
