Bring your party to the Downs for a day (or night) at the races.  Entertain your clients, employees,family and friends and we’ll tailor the event to your special needs.   

Our chefs will work with you to customize a menu for your guests.
You can have a race named for your organization, and have your picture taken in the winners’ circle!
