Since moving away from Phoenix in 1992 I wondered why Turf Paradise still looks the same inside? Oh well....it's gotta be very expensive to upgrade & make the place look like Del Mar or Louisville..... All in all, a really fun day with GREAT Breeder's...More

The building looks tired and in sore need of some updating, and there's narrow old-fashioned turnstile entry before you get to the pretty landscaping and such flowerbeds. Inside it's all very shabby, with dated seating, old-fashioned tv's and grungy carpets. Food is actually surprisingly good.not...More

I would not take children under 13 to the track that day. Will be very crowded because it is both Kentucky Derby Day as well as Cinqo de Mayo. Could get a bit rowdy.
