General admission to the grandstand is FREE!
Admission for Children is FREE - Every Day
That’s right, admission to the races for children (17 and under) is completely FREE. Plus, we have the most beautiful athletes in the world that can’t wait to meet the little ones.

Don'tStay rooted in one place, explore!
It's called a 'day at the races' for a reason. That's because horse racing is unlike any other sporting event. Races go off every half hour, which means you'll have plenty of time to joke around with fans and roam the grounds to look at the beautiful horses.
