"Having our own outdoor box and no one sitting in boxes near us made it feel COVID-safe. It was great to have a little outing and watch the races."

Fun time, family friendly out on the box level, nice and helpful staff, clean bathrooms - fun day!

Everything was great except the food concession element as they kept running out of food they had already sold however the staff frantically working to fill orders was fantastic. The food itself was ok, a bit overpriced but to be expected as a concession and the pricing on the website is not consistent with the pricing at the concession, seems prices went up about $1-2 but they haven’t updated their food menu on the website. The concession on the box level could have used an additional server as these 2 ladies were trying to take orders & collect payment, prepare orders, and prep the stations all themselves - they needed someone to make runs to the kitchen for product instead they were having to stop preparing orders to call someone on their cell phone to get more product, load it into the stations and 1 time the gal had to leave the concession to run off somewhere to get chips for the nachos . And they ran out of items constantly throughout the day and eventually running out completely on certain items - whomever was in charge of ordering let their team down.

It was great! Upgraded to Turf Club fir an extra $5. Unfortunately the four of us were not able to avail of the $10 wager that we were promised. The app did not work, so felt a little short changed because of that.

You must place your bets through their selected app (1/ST Bet). Two members of our group were not able to open an account for betting even though we were given free money for betting. They would not be taking any risk with prepaid money. But, because the app couldn’t verify the identity of two of our friends, they were left out. We called two different help lines and customer service lines and spoke to the service people at the track. Even while the customer service people were speaking to the unidentified members of our group and checking their IDs, SS cards, and license they could not help us or override the app that said they weren’t real. Not fun.

Beautiful fields and horses. Nice environment. Unfortunately, if your phone is not able to scan the QR code for food and drinks there is no work around. You will just have to go without. No paper or voice orders - at least that’s what we were told.

We enjoyed going to the races, but were disappointed in the seating. We thought the box seats were in the Turf Club, but they were NOT. The box seats were basically general seating outside. We decided to pay additional money to upgrade to the Turf Club. The $10 credit was too difficult to figure out, so we were not able to use it. Also, the drink tickets were to the downstairs bar, which was so crowed, that we were not able to take advantage of the drinks.

The travelzoo advertising value is a joke. We purchased 4 person VIP package for $69 to find out it is general admission, only received 2 drinks instead of 4 as we brought 2 kids with us. Same with $10 betting credit that you only receive one time when signing up for the app. Parking at the location was $10, entrance $6, everyone get the $10 credit when downloading the app. Do yourself a favor and purchase the tickets directly there. You will save your $$$. It is even cheaper on week days.
