Exciting racing. Close up. Place your bets and hope for the best. Good deals on food and drinks for certain promotions. You just have to watch for them.

Place is dated. Had dinner at restaurant on site...our waiter, named Nico, had zero personality and a memory of a gnat😩. Food was lukewarm at best. The racing was fun though. Just wouldn't go back to restaurant.
