We regularly spend an afternoon at Tampa Bay Downs during the live racing season. It is horse racing and poker only. The attendants are generally nice, but it isn't like other tracks that we have been to such as Canterbury Park in Minnesota (Minnesota nice) and not as clean either. The Tampa establishment is a little grittier but the food... 更多
This was our first visit and went with friends for the day on a Friday. Easy location to find and plenty of parking. Paid $3 each for entry and another $3 for race programme. There's indoor/outdoor/grandstand seating, trackside standing areas, screens to watch the races plus catering facilities and a full bar. All staff we encountered were a friendly bunch... 更多
Horse racing is a really old sport,which seems to be dying out. The track has an attractive field, and the horses are magnificent. I like to head to the stables at the side, so I can get a closer view as they are brought to the track. It's a great way to spend a few hours in the winter, when... 更多
We go here every year with the wife's family and they usually have a Groupon available. Tampa Bay Downs does a lot right and is much cleaner than many racing venues with decent and cheap food options as well. The employees are nice with the only negative being some older tv's. Definitely recommend spending a day here.
I have been coming to The Downs for years and absolutely love it. Everything is easy here starting with the parking. The lots are close to the entrance gates. When you enter the track take note how clean it is. Go outside and you quickly see what a beautiful track looks like. Make a left and get to the walking... 更多
Just visited Tampa Bay Downs yesterday. It is a great facility, but live horse racing does not start until 11/26 (so if this is the activity you wanted to see check the schedules). The Poker rooms are ok, but they do look over the track which is gorgeous. There is a variety of games (sorry folks, no slots for those... 更多
I enjoy going here for derby day. It's easy to wager and the staff are wonderful. Unfortunately there is not live racing year round but you can always play poker. Next door to the track is a driving range with real turf to tee off and practice. Good outdoor or indoor all around time.
A group of friends enjoyed a day at the track with lunch and seating in the clubhouse. The meal was delicious . We even had a race named for our club and pictures after the race with the winning jockey and the horse.
we love to come here and we barely even gamble. Jockeys, horses, track, paddock, bugels, announcers, food, drink, crowds. the roar of the crowd, excitement. you can't have more fun for less money anywhere in tampa except maybe the beach? this is good old fashioned American, hot dogs, 4th of July fun!! Don't miss it!
