Went to Retama Park for the evening and played the dog races. It was excellent. The staff were very helpful and personable. Had a great time.
Been to Retama Park once several years ago and it was pleasant. Nice crowd but not too much. Clean, food and drink abundant. BUT NOT THIS TIME!!! Hubs and I went on a Saturday evening to see the Camel and Ostrich Races. I've been to them before in California and they were a hoot. But all the San Antonio gates... 更多
This was a great first experience to watch live horse racing. Their web page and Facebook pages give you some info. Here's what it doesn't say: Live Races friday & saturday during certain months, Free parking (before 5:15pm at least), $2 entrance and may sit Anywhere until 5:30pm because some people pay an additional $20 for reserved seats, $2 seating... 更多

I always enjoy coming here every May. Lots of interest and fun. They need more staff for drinks, food, and especially bets.

We came to Retama Park on a Saturday night with an other couple and had a really good time! The actual races a pretty short(about 30 seconds) and run about 15-20 minutes apart. There is smoking inside, so just be aware. They also have an awesome craft beer bar with very reasonable prices!
We stayed at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort and the park wasn't to far away. Once the races got started it was fun to watch with a group of friends. Drinks are ok, food could be better and betting is pretty easy, once you get the hang of it. Would go back, definitely!
Love it ! The people around you are friendly , good seats , face painting & balloon making for the kids , I recommend it you get to ride the horses sometimes they even have the little farm with goats and pigs and other farm animals , they have beer and drinks and gambling ! It's a lot of fun... 更多
