Recently, Lone Star Park invited my family and I for a day at the races. Have you ever been? It’s a great outing for the whole family!
The grounds are amazing and the horses are absolutely BEAUTIFUL to watch. You’ll often find kids leaning over the rails, trying to get the best view possible of these incredible animals!
Be sure to head behind the main building to the paddock area. This is where you’ll find the stables, as well as the horses heading to and from races. Trainers often exercise the horses in this area, so kids really enjoy it!
Betting is completely optional, but you never know… Our daughter recommended a long-shot, so we placed our $2 bet and actually won over $100.00!!
Special Promotions and Events
Lone Star Park also offers a number of special promotions and events throughout the season, such as “Sunday Discounts” – Bring a Pepsi can and receive one (1) free General Admission and one (1) free large Pepsi every Sunday ( *Offers are valid on Sundays during live racing only. )
This weekend, enjoy a SPECIAL event at the races!!
Join us on Saturday, April 29 for Extreme Racing. Camels, ostriches and zebras will hit the track between live horse races – ridden by our very own jockeys – and they’ll run their hilarious hearts out for charity, because each animal is paired with a worthy local non-profit. Plus, bring the little ones out to enjoy our Family Fun Park on the lawn with a petting zoo, bounce houses and a chance to meet the stars of the show – camels, ostriches and zebras! Gates open at 4pm. First race at 5pm.
