Possibly one of the top 50 wonders of the world. I wish I owned the place. PS - they say gray horses have weak ankles, but I say don't believe a word they say. Trust your gut and win some money.

Special window on the top floor of the grand stand. Shortest line.
Before each race, all the horses come out for a showing (near the front gate). Make sure you go and look at each horse in the eyes. Then you'll know who to bet on!
