Silky’s Back Gate Pub

Silky’s Back Gate Pub is dedicated to Silky Sullivan (1955-1977), the greatest come-from-behind stretch runner in horse racing history; and to all the competitors in sports, as in life; who against heavy odds, have come from behind to finish in the winner’s circle.

One of Brookside’s many proud amenities, Silky’s Back Gate Pub, offers a wonderful place to grab a refreshing drink between events or unwind after a long day of competition. Inside our pub, you’ll find comfortable seating where you can relax or socialize with friends. From our bar stools, our customers enjoy an impressive view of our Indoor Arena, where riders often warm-up their horses and practice jumps. And if fresh air is what you crave, Silky’s deck is a great spot to watch action on the show arenas, or experience a stunning Brookside sunset next to Silky’s patio bonfire pit.

Silky’s Back Gate Bartenders provide a full bar service, with beer, wine and cocktails. We also serve a few snacks and desserts, for those late-night munchies when our cafe is closed.
