Fourth Annual Wiener Dog Races

Join us for the one race where size doesn’t matter. Four-legged competitors of a markedly different breed will step into the starting gate this Father’s Day. Come watch adorable dachshunds compete in a 30-yard dash for cash prizes and their spot in the Wiener’s Circle.

Track Apron doors will open at 3pm. No pari-mutuel wagering will be available on these exhibition races.
