If horses could talk about the pure joy around the Alameda County Fair race track, it would be...Big Jess, Damage Control and Spectacular. Jeanne brought that joy and hospitality each and every year. Thank You...!

I work in the horse racing industry in New Mexico, but I'm a native of Oakland and return to the area to visit family often. One of my favorite places to visit is the OTB in Pleasanton. It's clean, the food is good and reasonably priced, and it's just a pleasant place to spend a day. Hats off to Jeanne Wasserman!
