Oaklawn race track has been very well maintained and was an excellent place to watch the horses run. The club seating and buffet was a nice way to watch horse racing. A nice outing

What a great time! Admission is free, seating outside was free, we were able to visit the infield and watch the races from a variety of areas throughout the day. Best of all, I had the sense enough to bet on a winner: Magnum Moon!...More

I had not been in 3 years. Facilities are being kept cleaner than before. Employees were all polite & helpful. Food items were very good - Corned beef sandwich & pastrami sandwich, nachos.

We went with our grown son and there's no category for that. Oaklawn is always a fun day. Wish we'd won more but we never expect to do so. Park across the street. $20 and our car is always safe and easy to access.

I don’t think children under 21 are allowed, best to call them directly.
