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 to Sam Houston Race Park will let you palpate it all day. Choose between two options:
- $12 for a four-pack of general-admission tickets (a $24 value)
- $200 for a private suite for up to 20 people (a $400 value)
Bolstered by the buzz of live thoroughbred horseracing, Sam Houston Race Park entertains friends and family with its hoof-happy splendor. A four-pack of tickets grants great views of each steely steed as they rocket around the racetrack before being disqualified for illegal use of jetpacks. Win, box, and trifecta the afternoon away, then use your winnings to dine in the park's award-winning restaurant, The Winner's Circle, where guests can peruse carving stations, chocolate fountains, and pasta creations seasoned for every palate. Larger groups can bask in the spaciousness of the race park's private suites and brainstorm their own bizarre racehorse names between races. Food and drink is not included in this Groupon-specific suite special; catering arrangements can be made at the time of reservation for an additional cost per guest.
