Fun place to watch the horse races. Lots of fun, good food & nice people. A pleasant day to sit in the historic box seats & look at the beautiful track as the horses warm up and then race. Great photo opportunities here !

This is a piece of history that is truly a piece of art. Over the years, being an owner it was a real special opportunity to sit and watch the jogging going on.

Something different for a Sunday afternoon...bring the family and cheer on your favorite horse. Admission price is reasonable and refreshments are available.

Lots of fun in an old operating race track. No betting. Try to attend when their is a function at the track or town.
