Was there for the Kentucky Derby. Not bad. A couple gate watchers could have been better informed but we found what we needed.

Was there for the derby in the tent. Everything was fine, help was on their game getting drinks. It was just a real kick backed atmosphere to watch the races. A few more out houses would be appreciated

What kind of Sportsbook closes at 8pm?!?! Went for the first time with my buddies to bet some NBA and college hoops games for feast week as part of our blackout Wednesday plans this year and we were let down to say the least. We arrived at 6:30, placed our bets, and ordered some buckets and food only for all of the bet kiosks and payout desk to shut down at 8pm. Both employees working the room left without warning and we were unable to cash our winning tickets. There were no hours posted so we had just assumed they shared the same hours of the OTB section, but that was not the case. Several other patrons were confused as well when they went to cash their tickets and the payout desk was closed. It was incredibly annoying to have to go back the next day just to cash our tickets. If the Sportsbook is going to keep the hours of closing at 8pm I’d rather just bet from my phone and take my business elsewhere. Other than that it’s a great environment to watch sports. Food was nice and staff working the OTB section were incredibly friendly.

I went there for the first time, always went past there and never stop in. But this time I was playing the Belmont stakes. Nice and clean place also good crowd. The people behind the counter taking the bets were very hopeful. I will be back, would have gave 5 Stars no peanuts on the bar ,to go with my cold beer. Lol
