Throughout the 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. During each racing event, jockeys clamor for a top position in the track standings atop their equine counterparts, 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. At self-service or clerk-operated betting windows on every level of the stadium, spectators can place wagers after scouting post positions, jockey bios, and other information in the racing program.
Throughout the season, Emerald Downs augments the excitement with a full lineup of promotions and special events, including giveaways, free family entertainment, and Fabulous Fridays, during which live music ushers horses on as they circle the track.
