At the first day of champions weekend today. Fabulous day brilliant racing. To be able to see these great horses up close was great. Race Course is fantastic in mint condition. Would recommend to everyone. Personally would love if both days of champions weekend were held here. 😀😀😀😀🏇🏇🏇🏇
Absolutely loved the experience. First time attending an actual race and the atmosphere was electric. The music after the show was great too. A lot of dancing and overall good entertainment. A really good place to check out for a grouping out or even if you just want to go there on your own.
