The best seat in the house may be the track’s Victory Terrace.  The Terrace features great views of the racing action and the NYC skyline along with a DJ, bar and grill. 

Live harness racing will commence at 7:15 PM, and fans can test their luck in Horseplay. Buy a horse for $1 and throw the horse into the car for a chance to win $100 and entry into the August 6th car drawing for a 2016 Scion FRS.
