The Quad doesn't just give race and sports bettors an area, it gives them their own floor complete with casino area, bar, race stadium and more.
The race area is a stadium by itself. It features five rows of individual TVs on desks at ground level and seven stadium levels of the same. It even has a stadium-style entrance. Horseplayers have 12 big-screen TVs to choose from.
Despite its unique layout, The Quad isn't in the pretty, new or fancy categories. This is an old-school place. It was built for the bettor. It's darker, older and grittier than the new books. The Quad made a name for itself by providing a bevy of unique propositions for big events, such as the Super Bowl, not for serving fancy cocktails.
Still, a casual bettor who likes the classic book style should find The Quad comfortable and convenient. To get to the book, look for the escalators along the north wall of the main casino floor and follow the signs.
During football season, The Quad opens its theater to show games.
