Love to go to the Sky Theatre and sit by the window. Good buffet, inexpensive drinks. $1 Sundays for beer and hot dogs. Casino has lots of fun additional games after the races.
We stopped by Ellis Park on a Sunday afternoon. Sundays are Dollar Day, and the place was mobbed. This is both good and bad. Good because it was nice to see so many people enjoying a day at the races. Less good because there were lines everywhere.
Enjoyed an uncrowded and beautiful day at Ellis Park. Public areas were clean. Different types of food for most tastes. An affordable afternoon for something different. Of course at two dollars a race the food and drink is where the expense is for me.
Great place to get up-close to horses and the track. An older venue, and not fancy, but not crowded either. Food and beverages are not too terribly expensive. They race Friday, Saturday and Sunday from mid-summer to Labor day. Seating along the fence with picnic tables make it great for families with little kids...they can run with the horses!
went there with 40 bucks and left with 223 i probably will go back soon but my luck will lose all that i won plus
I've been going here since I was about 4 years old. My grandfather used to take me and I have a lot of memories. He still goes, but not as often, so I try to make it out as much as I can (I live in Dubai now so it's rare). Cheap food, beer, and open air. Don't expect Churchill's... More
You can take the whole family and have fun. On Sundays $1 beer and hot dogs. Very inexpensive fun. You can bet as little as $2 per race. Speical events include camel and dachsund races.
This is no Churchill Downs and if you're "high maintenance," it isn't the place for you. But you get up close and personal with the staff, who are friendly and fun, get to see some up and comers, and it's a terrific family atmosphere - yes, really. Kids have a ball there.
I love watching the horses run, and taking chances on which one will win. I've gotten rusty with my handicapping and truly lost my edge, but it's still very enjoyable just seeing those beautiful creatures.
