The perfect venue for your next event.

We are proud to offer world-class horse racing as well as 600 games, live and simulcast wagering, and a variety of food and bar options to entertain your guests.

Our dedicated Special Events Team is looking forward to working with you on your group sales arrangements. We’re pleased to offer a variety of menu and beverage opportunities to compliment your experience enjoying the horse races in our beautiful New Kent setting.
