A Day At The Track

And they're off! Another fun season at Central Arkansas' very own premier horse racing showcase of the South, Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. Tomorrow January 14th will start another year of mile high corned beef sandwiches, humongous shrimp and oysters, ice cold beer and a few short months with your favorite fillies and colts. And the horses are pretty darn fun too!

Don't forget to take extra money for those hungry little slot machines the track now has and when it's all over at the end of the day, be sure to eat at Cajun Boilers before you safely travel on home. However, if you are lucky enough to stay the night, you can attempt a room and bath at the world famous Arlington Hotel and eat at the Pancake Shop the next morning. I guarantee that these are the best and most delicious things to do when you take in a day at the track...this creature of habit has been doing just that for the last 35 years! Tally ho!


  1. The track opening has been called off due to the coldness in the air and possible harm to horses and jockeys. Open tomorrow!

  2. The mile high corned beef sandwiches for 50 cents on opening day are not as mile high as they use to be! The full price ones are a whole lot better! The old...u get what u pay for...applies here.
