Business is picking up at the Palace Casino in Biloxi for Derby Day tomorrow.
Bettors are placing their bets on the big race Saturday at the Contact Sports and Race Book. The Run for the Roses tends to bring new faces into the betting world and there’s plenty of help to get you through it. There’s a guide, kiosks, and plenty of employees willing to help.
If you plan to enjoy the race at the Palace Casino tomorrow, your best bet is to come early because they are currently seating at 50 percent capacity. Palace Casino Resort General Manager Keith Crosby said, “I think we are one of two locations that have race book. It started back in 2003 trying to get here. And we are happy to be here. Our owners had horses in the derby twice since then. So, it is kinda a home field for us. We are looking forward to it. It’s a little weird having Derby Day this time of year but we are glad to see it. I think it is an indication that things are stabilizing and we are getting back to normal and that’s a good thing.”
