Best Horse Track New York 2012 - Aqueduct Racetrack
110-00 Rockaway Blvd.
Jamaica, NY 11417
Best horse track is a no-brainer, right? After all, who doesn't swoon for Belmont Park's beautifully groomed infield, magnificent bleachers, and storied history? Still, don't rule out Queens' Aqueduct Racetrack, a perfectly viable mile-and-one-eighth that brings thoroughbred racing inside city limits, perfect for a casual day of relaxing, low-stakes gambling. If that eventually grows tiresome, you can always jet inside to play the slots at the newly opened Resorts World Casino or head upstairs for some of the best dim sum in the city. OK, it doesn't host any leg of the Triple Crown, but if you're looking to go to a major race, April's Wood Memorial might end up being a better time anyway. 110-00 Rockaway Boulevard, Queens, 718-641-5700, nyra.com/aqueduct (11420)
