8 races with beautiful weather. Shaded stands and indoors providing comfort. Magnificent views of second narrows bridge, the mountains, the water, and beautiful racetrack. Many people were dressed casual, however quite.a few were dressed up. Wife n I dressed it and made a day of it. Took photos. Had drinks and bet on games. Drinks were not very expensive. Granville island honey lager was only $6.50. Minimum bets 2$ each race. Parking was easy but 10$. Entry to the track was free admission.
Sat inside 4th floor for buffet to watch a few of the rounds. Buffet was 22$ each. If u dont want buffet, theres a charge of 5$ to sit in here. I have to say the whole day was well worth the drive. Loved it at hastings horse track! The only upset was the enormous letdown of the buffet. This was the worst buffet ive ever been to. An elderly man I made conversation with was ckmplaining of the same thing. The food selection was dissapointing if not humiliating. Not worth the price of over 22 dollars each. Only 2 entree itema. Chicken n fish. And a fresh prime rib that a server would cut you. Else just salads crackers cheese desserts and breakfast items such as old waffles and oily bacon. At 230pm!!!??? Seriously?....poor selection. Mediocre quality of food. Would not eat buffet here ever again.
I highly recommend watching the races outdoors in bleechers or near the racecourse fence. Enjoy the ambience. Its like going back in time. Classic enjoyment. Avoid the buffet!
