Kentucky Derby Day

Chicagoland's Largest Kentucky Derby Party



          2013 Kentucky Derby

The annual celebration of one of the world’s great sporting events is a day long party—and you don’t need to go to Kentucky to be part of it!

The Kentucky Derby is a Grade I stakes race for three year-old Thoroughbred horses, held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, on the first Saturday in May. The race is one and a quarter miles at Churchill Downs. The race is known in the United States as "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports™" for its approximate duration, and is also called "The Run for the Roses" for the blanket of roses draped over the winner. It is the first leg of the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing and is followed by the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes.

Derby Day at Arlington is all about world famous Mint Juleps, live music by Erica Iozzo, and good times with great friends! You can watch and wager on the Kentucky Derby simulcast and other live races throughout the day.

We'll be hosting our annual Derby Day Hat Contest after the forth race so be sure to get fancy, creative and fun with your hat choice and enter for your chance to win some amazing prizes. PLUS, one lucky guest will be chosen to make the ULTIMATE BET - $1,000 to make a win bet on the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby!

The first 2,500 guests to purchase Derby Day tickets online and in advance will receive an official 2012 Kentucky Derby glass. Guests who have purchased tickets online can redeem for their Derby glass at the East Paddock redemption counter.
