You can bet the Kentucky Derby online from California and the world famous Santa Anita race track at any one of the internationally licensed racebooks, none of which will ever require a social security number.

California’s horse racing tracks offer some of the best Kentucky Derby events in the US outside of Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky itself.

Santa Anita will be featuring a top-of-the-line Kentucky Derby simulcast viewing but please note in regard to the trackside package: The Woodford Reserve Trackside is sold out. General still available.  

Head to the Chandelier Room if you can’t get trackside.

Dress in your Derby Day best, sip bourbon and whiskey, and bask in shimmering elegance. It’s not Churchill Downs, it’s part of The Biggest Derby Party West of Kentucky in the legendary Chandelier Room at Santa Anita Park.

Join us for decadent Bourbon and whiskey samples, gourmet food sampling and all the thrills and pageantry of race day on May 6th.

With signature dishes to be sampled throughout the afternoon, experience Los Angeles’ innovative dining and bar culture combined with the timeless tradition of Thoroughbred racing at Santa Anita Park. This is truly an event like no other offered at The Great Race Place!
