Off to the Races

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?

Well, do ya, punk?

If the answer is yes, then why aren’t you at Fraser Downs Racetrack & Casino RIGHT THIS MINUTE?

Horse Racing. Even if you’re not a regular at the track, it’s most likely been in your life peripherally via the big screen. There are racing-themed classics like National Velvet and Secretariat, and popular films that feature iconic racetrack scenes like My Fair Lady and Pretty Woman. So, what’s all the fuss about?

For one, it’s a good excuse to dress up. Need a reason to dust off the hat you wore that one time to a wedding? Now you have one. If you’d rather dress comfortably, that’s fine too. There’s no specific dress code at Fraser Downs. Horse racing is inclusive. The track is magical – a rare place that brings people together, regardless of age, social status, background or income bracket. And that’s another beautiful thing about the track and casino: it’s not an activity that requires a large overhead. You can spend as much or as little as you’d like.

Nothing beats the exhilaration of live horse racing… especially when your pocket money’s at stake.

It’s also a good way to work up an appetite, and trust us, Fraser Downs has you covered. There’s The Bridge, a full-service restaurant and bar that overlooks the casino and racetrack. For a covered view of the finish line and the majestic animals thundering over it, there’s The Racebook. You can also book a table or reserve a private box at The Homestretch, which features floor-to-ceiling windows with both trackside and terraced tables. The Clubhouse boasts the same view, an exquisite buffet and individual TV monitors at each table to showcase live racing. The dining options at Fraser Downs are vast, which means you can spend the whole day there without skipping a meal. And you don’t have to go far to toast your big win… or drown your sorrows after a loss.

Fraser Downs has live horse harness racing on Fridays and Sundays until the end of April and a grand casino with slot machines, table games and a poker room that operates all year round. But that’s not all. Check out their website to explore their ongoing promotions, like Sunday Slot Tournaments, ‘Wins Day’ Wednesdays (for people who are ’50 or better’), and Ladies Night Out.

Next time you’re looking for something fun to do, give Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino a chance. You can bet your bottom dollar on it being a good time. (See what we did there?)
