This track isn't one of the best in California as kinda mediocre horses run either harness racing or Thoroughbreds. Best time to go is when the State Fair is going on and some decent horses come through. Other than that and really always, if you're...More

Great experience, races are on time and mostly well kept grounds. People throw their ticket stubs on the ground a lot

We usually go on opening day and have breakfast and lunch at the Turf Club with a good view of the track.

A great way to start your venture to the state fair....lunch, a little gaming, winning and then venture to see the animals, art work, and take in the evening concert. We rarely attend the horse racing outside of the fair, becuase it is harness racing...More

Check out the horse races at cal expo. Live harness races or mixed breed during the fair including thoroughbreds. They have pretty much daily Otb betting. It's a fun time out!!

Overall a pretty fun night at the track I think mostly because we left with some decent winnings. Only thing we thought was kind of a negative was the time between races seemed like it took forever. Also a lot of families out there and...More

I've been here a couple of times. Everyone is so friendly. Parking is close and plentiful, unlike the track at Alameda. You can either use the computer to buy your tickets or have one of the staff help you. They keep a specific window that...More
