Easy City Downs is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


It is a small city built from a pre-War horse track and is inhabited by raiders and Triggermen. There are also a number of non-hostile robots racing around the track, which include models such as the Mister Gutsy, Mister Handy, assaultron and eyebot. Throughout the area, there are several terminals that can be used to shut the bots down, turn them on the raiders and Triggermen or cause them to self-destruct.


The northwest side is derelict bleachers, southwest is Eager Ernie's lair on the upper floor accessible by the walkway from the center or by jumping on the two table umbrellas from the stands. East of that is the actual track, in the center of the track is a number of small fortifications filled with minor loot and raiders. On the south side of the center is a stable where the backups bots are stored.

Notable lootEdit

  • Tumblers Today issue #1 - On the upper floor of the southwestern building with Eager Ernie, upon a small table west of the master control terminal.
  • Eager Ernie's key and password - On Ernie's body. The password can be used to access a computer terminal located on the 2nd floor, which gives the following options: 1) to end the race (the robots deactivate and stand idly in place), 2) release 3 more robots onto the track, 3) disable combat inhibitors (makes all the robots hostile to the player), 4) override their targeting system (make the robots hostile to the raiders), 5) initiate a self-destruct sequence.
  • Scrapper's note - In the shed which houses the replacement robots, on the desk beside the robot control terminal.
  • Associate's note - On a raider or Triggerman. The Sole Survivor must know Libertalia's current boss Wire, otherwise the note will not spawn.
  • The Bugle repertoire - Carried by Ol' Rusty, the eyebot leading the race. This holotape plays trumpet music from the Pip-Boy.
  • Racetrack advertisement - On the first floor of the main building, beside the computer terminal.

Related questsEdit

  • Kidnapping - A group of raiders can take up residence in this location after they have kidnapped a settler. The Sole Survivor is required to come here and free the settler. The kidnapped settler will be next to Eager Ernie's steamer trunk.
  • Raider Troubles - This is one of the locations settlers will say raiders are coming from.
  • Reclamation - Alana Secord will send the Sole Survivor here to rescue a synth, captured by raiders during a patrol.


  • As the player character gets closer to the track, they will hear Eager Ernie running commentary on the race. If spotted, he will program the robots to attack the player character.
  • During the quest Rockets' Red Glare, when one boards the Vertibird and heads for the Prydwen, they will pass over the racetrack. One can hear Eager Ernie's commentary over the Vertibird's engine.
  • Including the extra robots that one can add to the race (via the 3 terminals in the area), there are a total of nine (9) robots.
  • The nine robots' names are: Atomic Dreamz (Mister Handy), Tin Man (protectron), Ol' Rusty (eyebot), Piece o' Junk (Mister Handy), Iron Maiden (assaultron), Lady Lovelace (assaultron), The Boston Blaster (Mister Gutsy), Bob's Your Uncle (Mister Handy) and Fusion's Folly (Mister Handy).
  • Companion reactions:
    • If Danse or Codsworth are brought here before the raiders are killed, they will complain about them misusing technology.
    • If X6-88 is brought here, he will mention that the robotics division of the Institute also hosted a robot sports event.
    • If Deacon is brought here, he will tell the player character to "Put [their] money on Black Velvet" because "that pony's gonna win for sure."
    • If Preston Garvey or Hancock are brought here, he will suggest that he and the player character stay to watch and see who wins.
    • If Cait is brought here, she will suggest that the player character bet on a robot to earn caps.
    • If Piper is brought here, she will laugh at the bizarre race.
    • If Curie is brought here, she will ask if this is what horse racing is, and comment that she has only seen pictures of it.


Easy City Downs only appears in Fallout 4.
