I liked this place but the employees are rude as hell.....the live racing is really cool but most times it is strictly off track..

The facility is very clean and comfortable. The table seating is good because there are closed circuit TV's to watch the races on while sitting. Unfortunately, the food service line was extremely long and I am not sure of the wait times.

Arapahoe I'd say is about 25 years old and replaced the former Centennial track in Littleton, so it isn't entirely decrepit. It is a VERY long drive from anywhere in the Denver area, even on the southeast side where the track is at, and it's...More

I went with a group that I belong to. We had reserved seating - it was very congenial. The food was ok.

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.
