Sounder provides horsepower to Emerald Downs for a "Ride to the Races"
Sound Transit's Sounder Commuter Rail service is teaming up with Emerald Downs to provide race fans between Tacoma and Auburn with an easy, hassle-free way to the track on selected Sundays throughout the summer. The train will arrive at Auburn Station at 11:25 a.m. - in plenty of time for Post Time - where a free shuttle will take fans to the track.
