  • Went here to cash a winning ticket from Belmont the day before. I went to the window on the 2nd level at roughly 12 noon. An older lady behind the counter saw me approach and in the nastiest tone basically yelled "I ain't open". There wasn't any other tellers available. I didn't say a word and walked off. Luckily, upstairs there was a really nice young lady who showed how I could cash the ticket in a machine which I did and left. I wouldn't take the time write but for the absolute nastiness of the first teller I met and also to comment on the helpfulness of the hostess working in the 3rd floor lounge. It was a Monday at noon and the place wasn't busy so you should know who I'm talking about.
  • Watch the race from the balcony and enjoy some good times if you like betting but you really don't have too if you just want to watch the race, also the casino is inside for some fun playing at the slot machines and there is a nice bar and some times there is live bands playing there too good place to relax some
