Watching & Betting on the Kentucky Derby

Getting tickets to the Kentucky Derby are about as easy as getting into Harvard – you need to be rich, refined or ridiculously famous. Out of luck? If you can’t get to the Bluegrass state then head to Sin City, the next best place to watch the Derby. VEGAS.com knows the best spot to watch the race, place your bets and get your mint julep on. Giddy up.


Before you put all your money on Seabiscuit, talk to Paul Mello, VEGAS.com employee and sports book extraordinaire or check out VEGAS.com’s guide to gaming. Still need help? Ask Paul Mello, a local guy, who knows the ins and outs of the sports books.

Wynn Las Vegas Race and Sports Book – Featuring three big screen televisions, a specialized VIP section and independent betting lines not found at most casinos, the Wynn Sports Book has quickly gained a reputation as being one of Sin City’s most luxurious sports books. For more information check out VEGAS.com’s Sports Books section.

Aladdin Race and Sports Books –Aladdin’s Sports Book is throwing its annual Kentucky Derby Party. Offering satellite booking, classic mint juleps and stadium style snacks there’s no better place to watch the races. VEGAS.com recommends getting there early, doors open at 7:30am.

Mandalay Bay Race and Sports Book –Mandalay Bay’s Sports Book offers some of the highest betting limits in all sports. Grab a mint julep, settle into one of the 300 seats and choose which of the 84 televisions (including one 28-ft by 30-ft projection screen) you want to watch the races from.

Blondies Sports Bar & Grill – The VIP room at Blondie’s offers personalized service along with PlayStations and DVD players to keep horse racing fans busy during commercials. With the Kentucky Derby playing on 35 plasma and big-screen televisions no matter where you sit you’ll feel up front and center. For more information check out VEGAS.com’s Dining section.

ESPN Zone – ESPN Zone is the place where people go to talk about and watch nothing but sports. Watch the races in the screening room, featuring two 14-foot TV screens, surrounded by 12 36-inch TV screens. Get there early and grab one of 11 “Zone Thrones” aka 11 leather reclining chairs with speakers in the headrests and tray tables along the side.


Getting dolled up for the races requires a pair of snazzy white gloves and the largest sun hat you can find. When in doubt check out The Attic, a hip vintage clothing store guaranteed to make you the prettiest belle of the bar. Don’t worry gentlemen, VEGAS.com’s sure you can find a nice seersucker suit there too.
