Assiniboia Downs Horse Racing.
____ A Saturday evening in Winnipeg, Manitoba, from May to September and the best entertainment on offer. Great value, free entry, good food, relaxed atmosphere and betting available from $2 and up. I cannot understand why more people don't go. The grandstand might be 50 years old but there is comfortable seating and flat-screen TVs everywhere. Eight races a night with an average of 6 horses in each. I only get to go about five times a year but usually pick 2 or three winners each visit. Never won big and only drawn a blank on one occasion but always enjoyed it.
