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

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
