The 166 acre facility, located midway between Seattle and Tacoma in the Auburn Valley features a state-of-the-art, six level stadium with a commanding view of the entire one-mile racing oval.

The excitement of Thoroughbred racing is combined with many special events throughout the summer. Live bands in the park and Family Sundays, complete with face-painting clowns, pony rides and more.
