We went to the 2pm race. If you take kids, avoid first floor. It looked like the gambling and drinking crowd. The second floor was closed for renovation. Third floor was nice. New carpet. Chairs were clean. We sat next to the glass windows and...More

Everything is televised and the clientele is very colorful as well as the language. It is not a place for ladies to go by themselves. Individuals do not clean up behind themselves, so there are papers and beer bottles all around. Just something different to...More

I did not go to see the races, but to pick up greyhounds for our rescue group. The track is not as nice as some of the others that I have seen, but the people in the kennels were really nice.

Took a day-trip to this track to watch the Belmont Stakes. This was my first visit in a couple of years, and it has really hit the skids. From the outside, it looks like an unused, derelict factory. Inside, it's not much better. Here's a...More
