Tampa Bay Downs Horse Racing

OMG...We had soooo much fun I'm booking two more Meetups here.  It's free admission!!!  You can't beat that with a stick!  Two beers and a Nathan's hotdog were under $10.00.... 

Sooooo, ya think you want to go up into the grand glassed in section and sit in the air condition and only come out to the rail when the race starts.....  The charge for that, $3.00

If you have a big lens, bring it!  All of my photos were taken with a ef[masked]mm.

If you looking for a FUN yet cheap afternoon, this is the place to be!

    This was a really fun event viewing and photographing the horses and jockeys plus listening to the crowd roar as the horses crossed the finish line. I will post some pictures tomorrow.

    I will probably miss this one; I got too much sun last Sunday at the Punta Gorda Air Show and will be out in the sun all day this Saturday at the Lakeland Sun 'n Fun Air Convention.

    What a gorgeous day. Frank is right, free parking, free admission, etc. Pay for a beer & a Nathan's dog. My kind of shooting.

    I checked their online calendar and it appears that they do not have live racing on April 3rd.

    The calendar also states that on Wednesday, Apri 2nd (live racing) that one gets a free grandstand pass good for the month of April.

    There is a groupon that includes valet parking, free program, $5 towards food (the deli sandwiches are fantastic), clubhouse seating, and a $2 betting ticket. It's $29 for 4 people or just a little more for 6, great deal, I've done it several times!
