Went to spend a few hours in the Casino since the live racing wasn't going on this time of year. Did lose too much but enjoyed the staff at the bar and some casual gambling

The casino compares with those I’ve been to in Shreveport and Oklahoma. Clean, plenty restrooms and food venues. Parking lot shuttle is nice as well.

Closest Casino atmosphere that you will fund outside of Vegas. Modern, clean, excellent assortment of machines. Safe and secure parking and very friendly people. Probably gets bery busy during the racing season, but otherwise, nice and uncrowded.

We went to the horse races, and got a table here. It was a buffet, with some tasty dishes. Service was good. Overall, it was a fun day, with average food.
