By Brandon Dudley March 29, 2012
Spring is on its way and one great way to impress a client or reward your team with a corporate outing to a horse racing track. Horse Tracks are not only worth going to during the Triple Crown Races but throughout the spring and summer it a great place to check out. If you have never been to a horse race or even just to visit a horse racing track, you should change that and while you’re at it take your clients or employees with you.
Horse Tracks make for great corporate event spaces as they are prepared for groups. Typically a racetrack will have private rooms available for your group to mingle and relax along with great views of the track. Many of the tracks offer special food and drink catering for your group
