The Horses Are On The Track

Churchill Downs

Where to go to watch the Kentucky Derby? With Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby colliding it seems that the horses are taking a back seat to Mexico’s celebration of beating the French. But there are a few places out there that are focusing on Derby fans.

At the Public House they’re hosting “Hats and Horses” where picking the winning trifecta will net you a $500 gift card and ladies wearing their best hat get a complimentary cocktail.

The recently reopened Misconduct Tavern is also catering to the race fan. There will be the pre-requisite Mint Juleps, as well as a special Southern menu served all day.

O’Neals, named one of America’s best sports bars by the Sporting News gives you the best of both worlds with high-def horse racing, mint juleps as well as $3 Mexican beers.

Or if you want to see some horses up close, head to Philadelphia Park where there is live racing as well as simulcasting of the Derby. And of course you can bet there.
