ALL STOPS ON THE ROAD TO TRIPLE CROWN AT PINES RESTAURANT & CASINO
There is only one thing more exciting than watching horses compete for the most important trophy in the sport - doing it with a bunch of other people who are just as excited as you are.
That big trophy is the Triple Crown and you can get excited about it with your friends, and others, at the Pines Restaurant & Casino at Evergreen Park.
The Crown includes three races - the Kentucky Derby on May, 5; the Preakness on May 19; and the Belmont Stakes on June 9.
This year is the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby; the 143rd Preakness; and the 150th Belmont Stakes.
The Pines, open 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily, is the only facility in the area where you can watch and wager on all of the Triple Crown races.
Racing is featured on a variety of screens in the Pines year-round, there are two betting machines to play the ponies and in-depth programs for races from across North America available to be printed so you can get the ins and outs of every horse entered in all of the races.
The Road To The Triple Crown offers some added value.
if you visit the Pines to watch any or all of the three Crown races you could win a first prize of $150 cash or a second prize of $100 cash. There will also be Slow Horse Sweepstakes "consolation" prizes.
