Watch and wager on the Kentucky Derby Saturday, May 1st in unequalled comfort at Gulfstream Park.
With the colossal tote board and dozens of large-screen TVs tuned to the first jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown, guests can take in all the action of the most exciting two minutes in sports without missing a thing.
Whether you are dining at Ten Palms or Christine Lee’s, playing slots or poker, huddling with fellow handicappers in the Silks Simulcast Center, enjoying South Florida’s beauty in the grandstand or open-air Jameson Jockey Club, or hoisting a favorite beverage in the Breezeway Bar, all areas feature comfortable seating as well as food and bar service, an array of flat-screen TVs, betting windows, convenient self-service wagering machines, and a lively atmosphere that puts you trackside all day and into the night.
And don’t be surprised if some of the horses look familiar: Eskendereya, who won the Fountain of Youth here, is now top-ranked in the Kentucky Derby, and he’ll be racing against Florida Derby champion Ice Box and other Gulfstream Park runners, truly a testament to the fact that the road to the Kentucky Derby runs through Gulfstream Park.
Few horses in recent years have captured the nation’s hearts as much as the undefeated Barbaro, who took the 2006 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park before crushing his opponents in the Kentucky Derby, or Big Brown, who parlayed a tally in the Florida Derby on his way to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes in 2008.
What better place to see America’s Race than South Florida’s home of championship thoroughbred racing, where heroes are made and records are broken every year?
Enjoy Mint Juleps and other drink specials, Vegas-style slots, fine dining, nolimit poker, and evening entertainment. On May 15, Preakness Stakes Day, and again on Saturday, June 5, Belmont Stakes Day, Gulfstream Park will provide another spectacular day of racing, prizes, contests and giveaways for the second and third legs of the Triple Crown.
Providing the perfect complement to all the action is the newly opened Village at Gulfstream Park, a Mediterranean inspired walking Village complete with world-class shopping, a variety of international dining experiences and all the nightlife you can handle. The Village is connected to the racetrack and casino through a series of balconies, walkways and staircases-truly a one of a kind, one-stop shopping and entertainment mecca.
