Throughout the spring and summer, the track at Emerald Downs rumbles beneath galloping hooves as four-legged athletes bolt toward glory in front of fans both young and old (kids under 17 enter free). During each race, jockeys clamor for position in the track standings, who, rather than retiring to quiet lives as local-newspaper oat critics, solidify their legacy in Emerald Downs lore by attempting to break the track's longstanding records.
In addition to horse racing, there are plenty of other activities, like playing table games at the new casino. There are also frequent promotions and special events to energize the track's atmosphere. Popular events include Food Truck Festival, Corgi Races, Longacres Mile, and Italian Day. What's more, giveaways, family entertainment, and Fabulous Fridays with live music and beer specials provide a lively atmosphere for guests to eat, drink, and play.
