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. 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.
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.

One of our most popular areas is our Trackside Pavilion. With an up-close view of the track, the Trackside Pavilion offers indoor and outdoor space. The bar, betting windows and buffet are conveniently located in the Pavilion. You will see the horses parade in front of you before the race, see the horses pass you during the race and you can also give a shout out and applause to the winning horse and jockey when they jog pass you on the way to the Winner’s Circle. You can’t get any closer to the action.
