Now when you were racing at Greenwood you could get a real nice meal at Bea's, Queen and Kingston Rd right across from the track or after you could go to the Diamond for a big Porterhouse with that big onion.

I think many horsemen banged back a few at the Orchard Park. You must remember Taylor's Esso on the north east corner of Kingston Rd and Queen. We used to use the white gate between the paddock and grandstand and go over there for a few drinks before the races with Wally Taylor, this were the days.

Meat pies with gravy, mashed potatoes and mixed veggies on main floor. Sure they had burgers, fries and hot dogs but the meat pies were real good.

Yeah the buffet was awesome. We used to drive up hwy #10 from Toronto in the early 80's and it seemed like Orangeville was an eternity away. Was quite the haul in winter when heading up as the snow never stopped.
