Horse racing is often called "the sport of kings," a throwback to the days when the cultural elite would amuse itself by watching horses race each other atop local monarchs. Though the rules of the sport have changed slightly, the palpable excitement remains, and today's Groupon will let you palpate it all day: for $14, you get $25 worth of dinner, a program, and a $2 wager at Maywood Park in Melrose Park or Balmoral Park in Crete (up to a $31.50 value). Today's deal is valid on Thursday or Friday at Maywood Park, and Saturday or Sunday at Balmoral Park.

Maywood Park and Balmoral Park entice eyeballs with the action-packed adrenaline of live horse racing while soothing stomachs with a selection of flavorful feasts. Cozy up in the enclosed and heated trackside seating to watch drivers round the corners through winter snowflakes while racing to escape rampant yetis. Spectators struck by hunger bolts at Balmoral Park can enjoy a smorgasbord of entrees and desserts in the Club Dining Room, and an expansive buffet on Saturday evenings. The cheerful eating area overlooks the one-mile track so onlookers can sate appetites without missing ribbon-breaking moments and mid-race equine dance-offs. At Maywood Park, diners can enjoy the fine cuisine at the Winner's Circle Dining Room while perusing through their programs and calculating odds with a series of logarithms and a pocket abacus. After weighing your chances or taking a hot tip from a mysterious stranger, wager a small bet and watch $2 grow into infinity dollars.


Four Yelpers give Maywood Park a 4.5-star average rating, and more than 600 Facebookers are fans. More than 1,080 Facebookers are fans of Balmoral Park.
