“We are excited to offer free admission all summer long, said Andrea Young, President of Sam Houston Race Park. We think this change will help us showcase the quality racing we feature during the summer months and help us capitalize on the local business community that now surrounds us.  As part of this program, we will also offer weekly food and drink specials making this an attractive place out for lunch or with a group of friends in the evening.”
