The Jockey Club has a local and friendly atmosphere for making you feel right at home. Instead of having to travel to Golden Gate Park to see the horse races, you can do it right here in Santa Rosa. The people are real and will show you the ropes. They cover most of the horse races throughout the United States on several televisions there. It is not that expensive. You spend what you want and bet what track you want to play. The food is great. If you have any questions, there is always a staff person available to help you out. This is a must do if you like to have a day with the ponies! I'm a regular and enjoy it completely.
Pros: Parking, Food, Customer Service and Fun
Cons: Parking can be limited on those big racing days.
