Track side review only! My husband and I are horse lovers and owners of several trail horses. Although we are not into the gambling aspect of it, we love horse racing and we’re thrilled to see it first hand up close and personal. Parking was only $2 and that was the only thing we would have HAD to pay for all day. We did choose to get a racing program to know what was going on. We got to see about 7 races from all aspects- right next to the finish line, from the starting gate, and from the inside. We loved going inside the paddock and seeing the horses and riders super close up. We gained a whole new appreciation for jockeys who ride different horses all day long- and for being brave enough to get up on some of the wilder acting ones. We did do some $2 bets just for the fun of it and we’re proud to see the staff almost not process us because they though I was under 21. (Husband gave her a big tip haha) The racing facility was very clean and family friendly. We look forward to returning again in the future!

Make sure u dont find money, chips or cashout tickets on the floor at oaklawn, or they will hold u responsible, if the careless person that lost it complains,and ssecurity will track u down if u used a players card, by rewinding footage from when u found money, then rewind to the point of wat last machine u played with card! Then they be slick and lock your players card, and when u try to use it, it flags security! I guess oaklawn motto, is customers can only lose money to us, our machines, and tables but not to another customer by droppin, losing money, chips, or tickets on the floor! Now i bet oaklawn wont say they responsible for car thefts on their parking lot or if a drunk person leavin their kills themself or someone

We loved Oaklawn ! We bought tickets at the gate , and went to check out the ponies on the ground floor before we went upstairs to the main room. Loved all the food and the drinks were on point ! We had a great view from our seats , and had the option of going out onto the bleachers if we choose. Go if you get the chance ... we will be back for sure !
