Mohegan Sun is geared up once again for the annual Kentucky Derby party held in the Uncas Ballroom

On Saturday, May 5th, this year’s “Run for the Roses” will be celebrated in full at Mohegan Sun with the annual Kentucky Derby Party held in the Uncas Ballroom. Doors for the special party will open to the public at 10:00am.

As always, the Derby’s signature cocktail, Mint Julep, will be available as well as additional drink specials and food options at the derby festival buffet.  Guests joining the fun will also be able to take advantage of thirty betting terminals to go along with nine large screens.  There will be open seating for approximately 1,000 people; seating is on a “first-come, first-served” basis.   All guests must be 21 years of age or older to participate.

Special guests offering key advice for this year’s event will be Joanna Jones, race analyst and host for HRTV and Linda Rice, the renowned trainer and first woman to hold a training title in New York.

After grabbing some pointers, all that’s left to do is make your picks.  Guests who make a $25.00 wager will receive a commemorative Mohegan Sun Derby souvenir and any $50.00 wager will allow guests to pass through the Derby Festival Buffet.
