Emerald Room and Bar

Emerald Room and Bar

Our largest banquet room is the Emerald Room. The Emerald Room does not have direct views of the track, so events during our non-racing days can be accommodated in this large banquet room with attached bar.

This location is ideal for meetings, banquets, fundraisers, weddings/wedding receptions, holiday parties, and tradeshows.

The Suites

The Suites

At the pinnacle of the grandstand, The Suites offer sweeping views of the racetrack, its lush surroundings and majestic Mount Rainier.

This one-of-a-kind venue offers the perfect setting to entertain clients or spend time with friends and family in your private suite.

The Suites are named after the three major horse races in the United States, Preakness, Belmont and Derby. There is a new addition opened in 2019, the Mountain View Suite. The Mountain View Suite is slightly smaller than the Preakness.

Please note that the virtual tour was created prior to the opening of our fourth suite, The Mountain View Suite.
