We had a lot of fun, we got a table and the crowd was great. The staff was helpful (it was a very hot day). There were a lot of vendors there for different food and drinks.

We have gone up to NY for a week of horse racing the last 15 years. A fun, family atmosphere. Always activities in the outer area of the race track. Sunday is a great farmer's market in the pavilion.
