Kids at the Track Poll

Most tracks allow children to attend and many kids seem to enjoy watching the horses. Lots of tracks even provide special activities for the children to enjoy and have family days to encourage parents to bring them. However, some parents seem to view the track as a huge free daycare and will bring their children and just let them run wild while they play the races. Some even bring their children to the track when there is no live racing, only simulcasts, and again just let them run wild until they are ready to leave. What do you think about this? Should kids be allowed to come to the track? Should they only be allowed when there is live racing and thus other activities for them besides the gambling only atmosphere you have from simulcasts seasons? Let me know what you think!
