    Placing bets

    I apologize for being so lazy, but instead of searching the forum I'll just ask. Other than Seaport Casino, do any of the others accept bets on the horse? We would like to put a few bucks on the Derby while we're there.

    Walt, I reached out to one of my island friends who works in a casino to ask if the betting machines many of the casinos have offers derby bets. I will let you know when he responds. He is probably on his way or at work so I won't here back till well after midnight.

    Walt - I'll keep an eye out here to see if we can find another place besides downtown. Then we can PM with plans for Derby Day! I rarely (if ever) gamble but I never miss a Kentucky Derby!

    First the first book is closed at this point at the Holiday Inn. Secondly, my friend just got back to me and YES the machines have the Derby lines available to bet. I know they have them at the Hilton, Ritz and I believe the Holiday Inn but I am not really sure about that one.

    Thanks! So, if Mr. Danadog has to watch the races, where is the best place to catch the Derby? And will they serve Mint Juleps??
