Palace Casino prepares for Kentucky Derby Race Day

The Kentucky Derby is set for tomorrow. Grab your mint juleps and head over to the Palace Casino where Kentucky Derby betting is heating up.

This world-famous horse race brings in countless bettors into the casino, all looking to cash out big after the most exciting two minutes in sports.

While the Kentucky Derby is the most popular race of the day, the earlier races begin around 10 with the Kentucky Derby running at 5:57 p.m.

Palace Casino General Manager Keith Crosby says he expects the sportsbook to be filled by the time the races begin in the morning. “We have a unique position. Our owners had a horse in the derby twice in last couple of years, so it’s a disappointment he doesn’t have a horse there. We look forward to it. It’s a fun time. It’s the beginning of the summer – it’s right at the summer – and we are happy to be able to provide this service.”

You can watch the Kentucky Derby on WXXV NBC tomorrow. All bets placed with Palace Casino must be made in house as there are no online options for the race.
