Even though this is a gambling place..it is a fun place to enjoy a family night out. Once you learn how to bet and the excitement begins. Locals should take advantage of this unique opportunity in the community

The food is good and the place is very clean. The place is not overly crowded and the price is OK. I only go when there is live racing, so I can't review the simulcast events.

They give statistics on the roster and you can decide from there. They also announce the odds on the horses and who the favorites are. Id say over half the time the popular vote horse wins.
