Best girls trip I've been on in awhile. The staff was all very helpful and friendly from the front door to the casino to the tellers! Definitely a fun daytime event then afterwards the casino and live music help top off the day!

We decided to enjoy the sunny day and go to the track. We’ve been before and it’s always fun. The food, especially the corned beef, is worth the visit. You can always have alcoholic beverages while you bet, people watch and watch the horse races....More

You can definitely spend a whole day here with the horse races and the casino. If it’s a race day you might have to pay for parking because the parking lots fill up easily. It’s worth a visit for sure.

Fun place with a lot of slots we have never seen before. Cobb salad from Silks was pretty good as well.
