I'm gonna say River Downs in it's heyday. Their was a really good Dixieland band roaming the stands with a fabulous trumpet player. Always enjoyed, was a Labor Day weekend trip for us for about 6 or 7 years running.

Saratoga and Kenneland, yes yes yes. Monmouth was ok too, and Oaklawn. Parx on PA Derby day, with a mummers band wandering is another great day to spend live. Santa Anita is picturesque and relaxing, and when I went to Del Mar and afterwards swam in the ocean, how can you top that?

Then again, there are some real boring clunkers. I have been to 60+ tracks.

In any event, I prefer live racing, but that's just me.

Good question. Pretty flawed survey, though it's been around since 2004.

I’ve been to a lot of tracks, and there is no more comfortable place to spend a day off than AP. Yes, the surface is well past it’s intended lifespan, but the turf course is still the best in the country and Illinois’ horsemen are running a higher class horse than they should for the purses they get on it. Imagine (once you get the lay of the land) getting from your box to the paddock and back to the box in 2 minutes if you can navigate the escalators

If you can catch a nice spring day where they’re on the turf, Hawthorne is a fair bet on a well-maintained track. I’m looking forward to it getting a casino, sportsbook, the summer race dates, etc since I live 10 minutes away
