Today's Horse Tracks are Ideal for Family Fun

Aug 17, 2007
Horse racing is a sport that's loved by millions all over the world. In some families, youngsters grow up with an appreciation for the animals, their speed and their majesty. But others wonder if the track is really the best place for families.

In reality, many horse racing tracks have very good set ups to make them more than suitable for family outings. While it's not likely a family would want to have their children exposed to the full-bore gambling action that's going on, most good horse racing venues provide outstanding indoor accommodations for family dinners and gatherings on Race Day. Others bend over backwards to create family sections, picnic areas, and even put on elaborate shows and activities for younger visitors.

Those who are interested in turning horse racing into a family affair will first want to scout out their local track, its racing schedule and restaurant accommodations. Oftentimes, it's possible for young horse racing fans to have an opportunity to go behind the scenes and check out the animals and their riders prior to the big races.

This will, of course, depend on the horse racing track in question and its policies. Whether visits are allowed or not, youngsters should still be able to get a good view of the action and learn to gain an appreciation for these speedy, but gentle giants.

Families that make horse racing an outing tend to do so by enjoying most of the action from the club level in the track's dining area. Here families can very often enjoy 5-star dining, or close to it, while they are removed from the stands, but not the ability to bet on the horse racing action if they so choose. Some venues for horse racing will have more affordable accommodations for families, as well.

As the parents and other grown ups enjoy the sport for its betting aspect, youngsters can get involved by simply enjoying the beauty and thrill of the race. Many youngsters are enamored by horses and their ability to run at break-neck speeds, giving both their parents and themselves a common interest. For races that take place in the day time, the horse racing action can be augmented by strolls around the track area or picnics on the grounds.

Some horse racing tracks embrace the idea of this sport being a family affair by providing activities for the youngsters as their parents enjoy the races. Others, offer up great picnic accommodations so families can enjoy time together while watching the horses run.

While children will not be allowed by law to post bets, their parents can, and the youngsters can still enjoy the sights, sounds and atmosphere of this great sport that dates back hundreds of years in human history.

While it's not likely most parents would want to bring their children to a casino, a horse racing track is an animal of a different color entirely. The sport has long been seen as one that can be enjoyed by all ages and many tracks make it their business to keep this tradition going strong. They do so by creating family friendly areas and welcoming young visitors to their grounds.
