This famed 350-acre racetrack features thoroughbred horseracing during its six-week season from late July through early September. Though one of the sport's premier events, the races often take second place to people-watching.

Races are fun I find that its easiest to show up late and bet on a few races and then leave early. Lots of people camp out for the day making longer lines when it first opens and closes. My favorite thing is to go...More

Men must wear a sport coat. My observation is that women wear dresses. This can be to look nice, keep cool on a hot afternoon, and to be ready to go to dinner or out on the town without changing.
