I had not been in 3 years. Facilities are being kept cleaner than before. Employees were all polite & helpful. Food items were very good - Corned beef sandwich & pastrami sandwich, nachos.

We went with our grown son and there's no category for that. Oaklawn is always a fun day. Wish we'd won more but we never expect to do so. Park across the street. $20 and our car is always safe and easy to access.

If you’ve never been to a horse race I highly recommend Oaklawn. It is really neat! The staff that checks tickets for seating upstairs could definitely be friendlier and more understanding, but other than that everyone was great.

We had never been to a horse race. Neat experience even if you aren’t a gambler. Good entertainment for an afternoon.

We went for the Rebel Stakes weekend. The weather was great. You can hang out inside or outside. We did ok the first day and horrible the 2nd day. We spent some time at the gambling tables. It gets crowded on the weekend.

Went to the track both a Friday and Saturday and did pretty well the first day but not the second. Good place to just spend a day and people watch and see some beautiful horses. Food and drinks are over priced and really not worth...More

Took my family along with mom and dad to the horse races! My 9 year old daughter went and had lots of fun. Family oriented with good food and cold beer. They have a decent casino also.

I don’t think children under 21 are allowed, best to call them directly.
