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.
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. Also, our new addition the Mountain View Suite opened in 2019.
The Council Room, located on our fifth floor, is a private balcony open to the fifth floor featuring breathtaking views of Mount Rainier. The tables have their own televisions, with a bank of televisions on the back wall. Between our races, you can watch and wager on other races around the country or keep an eye on your favorite sports team.
