    Yes. I was there on Saturday. Lots of kids outside. Not sure on rules on if they can come inside.

    Trackside and paddock yes.

    I think the rules have changed and they are not permitted to enter the club level though.

    Way back in the heyday of Ak-Sar-Ben --- my youth --- kids were kept in what was basically a large outdoor holding cell. You haven't lived until you've spent an afternoon in a cage while your parents played the ponies. It would be child neglect/endangerment in 2011.

    I believe the kids must enter at the south end door. I don't believe they can go through the casino.

    I encourage everyone to support local horse racing. Kids usually enjoy an afternoon at the track.

    you can go to the grandstand area as well you just have to take the most direct route - take the escalators - up to there ... this also allows access to the dinner buffet which is ok but isn't cheap ...
