We recently went to the 20th Anniversary celebration at Emerald Downs. It was a beautiful evening with no rain - well until we got ready to leave and then it was a deluge. There was thunder and lightning which caused the stewards to cancel the last race. But - prior to that there was a good race card for the... 更多
This is really a pretty track that is well maintained - both the track and the facilities. Live racing usually goes between mid April and mid to late September. Sunny days are particularly inviting as there is a great view of Mt. Rainier, plenty of choices of food and beverage, and attractive grounds to enjoy the great outdoors while demonstrating... 更多
Mona, thank you for the nice review! 更多
A beautiful view of Mt. Rainier from anywhere at Emerald Downs..the grand stand keeps you dry if a rain cloud goes by, worth paying the extra $2.50 per seat for the entire day..try the restaurant at the Downs..a nice buffet.
Thank you for the nice review. We love the summer and the view of Mt. Rainier! 更多
Emerald Downs seems to be a great and popular family day out. There were lots of activities for families and kids under 18 get in free (adults are 5$ with a "membership"). You can bring in picnic food (no glass or outside alcohol) and there are lots of tables with umbrellas available to eat at. The horse racing was good... 更多
Thanks for the nice review and please come visit us again soon! 更多
This great racing venue has a lot to recommend: reasonable prices, good seating and a nice selection of refreshments during the horse races. I went with a friend to watch the Indian Bareback Relay Races, a really exciting spectacle! However, there were FAR too many little kids running around, largely unattended. They bumped into us as we carried our beer... 更多
Shawn, thanks for the review. We did have a lot of families here for the Relay Races. We do offer... 更多
During horse racing season on a sunny afternoon you will enjoy a venture to the track --- maybe even win a few dollars. The scenery of the Cascade Mountains is beyond words and the facility is still new and clean to not worry about family members --- There are different seating areas, I recommend the box seats especially if you... 更多
Thank you for the nice review. We are all looking forward to the sunny summer days ahead and exciting horse... 更多
This is a smaller track, but has plenty of good atmosphere for an enjoyable day at the races. usually an 8 or 9 races, and typically small fields (7-8 horse), mostly claiming races, with the occasional graded stakes race. Plenty of self-service teller machines, good views from the clubhouse, paddock area is close by and you can get very close... 更多
Love this experience! Food is good, atmosphere is good. I recommend getting box seats so that you don't have to worry about your seat getting taken while up betting or getting a bite. Attentive staff and very helpful even for first time track goers.
Thanks for writing this nice review. We are looking forward to the upcoming season! 更多
It seems as if most people now are going to the casinos, which is too bad. There's nothing like watching the field come around the last turn heading for home, finding your horse and see how he'll finish.
We liked going to see Emerald Downs and watching the horses race. This is a nice horse racking track just south of where we were staying in Kent, Washington.
