If a person lives locally and wants to play slots for a couple of hours this is a good place to go. If you live in another community that already has a casino set up its probably not worthwhile coming out of your way to Cloverdale to play.
Fraser Downs is easy to get to, on the corner of 176th Street and 60th Avenue and there is lots of free parking.
For horseracing, Standardbred harness racing, check the website for dates. No racing between mid-May to mid-August and usually twice a week the rest of the year, probably Friday night and either Saturday or Sunday may be afternoon or night, and if there's a stat holiday there might be racing in the afternoon. Fraser Downs makes it very difficult for patrons who only want to watch horse races and not gamble in the casino. There is no grandstand/bleacher seating. If you want a good seat to watch the races you have to buy the buffet dinner or purchase a table that shows simulcast racing. If you want to watch the racing and not shell out $30 for a buffet meal it means standing outside by the racetrack fence or standing inside near the door/window and looking out. There is a casual restaurant in this area with extremely bad, slow service and if you sit at a table here you won't see the racetrack. There are usually 2 cashiers set up to take money for wagering on the racing.
Fraser Downs focus is on the casino and those patrons instead of the horseracing and having nice viewing areas for clients who don't want to purchase a $30 buffet in the Clubhouse. There is no live entertainment at this location, no show acts, but occasionally there might be a band playing for a special event.
