How To Enjoy Tomorrow’s Bulleit Bourbon Derby DayClub: Presented by Sanderson Lincoln

You don’t have to be in Louisville tomorrow to enjoy the Kentucky Derby.  The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships puts on the best party celebrating it, at the Valley’s only live horse racing track, Turf Paradise. The Bulleit Bourbon Derby DayClub: Presented by Sanderson Lincoln is the only Kentucky Derby event in Arizona with DJs, dancing, live horse racing, gambling and the fun atmosphere that is a part of every Scottsdale Polo Party.

The DayClub located at Turf Paradise in North Phoenix opens May 7th at 10:45 a.m. The first live horse race at Turf Paradise will take place at 11:30a.m. There will be 10 races throughout the day with The Kentucky Derby at 4:01pm and the last live horse race at 5:30pm. Betting terminals are conveniently located inside the tents or in Turf Paradise itself for you to place your bets. Wagering is cash only and ATMs can be found on-site. The event will conclude at 6pm.

Turf Paradise is located at 1501 West Bell Road in Phoenix. The Derby DayClub is located along the backstretch on the west side of Turf Paradise’s large, main building and designated by a very large, white Polo Party-style tent. Complimentary parking is available at Turf Paradise. Please follow the signs labeled with the Derby DayClub logo to Gate 1 to park closest to our event entrance.

If you have purchased or are a guest at a reserved table in either the
Sanderson Lincoln Black Label Lounge or Ketel One Botanical Pavilion, please check in with our reserved seating concierges. The concierge will be located at a high boy table at the entrance of the tent. They will provide you with designated reserved table wristbands and direct you to your table which will be assigned with your name in the center. For any other questions throughout the day, please consult the concierge who can further help you.

A variety of vendors will be inside and outside the tent, including Trampalina Fashion, Quarter Past Dress, Club Nirvana and some beautiful cars provided by Sanderson Lincoln.

A full-service bar is located in The Sanderson Black Label Lounge and The Ketel One Botanical Pavilion, including champagne and the traditional derby cocktail – Mint Juleps. Food vendors, including Munch Box and others, will be onsite to offer additional food and beverage options. Also on site will be The Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody Trailer and a 30-foot Stella Artois bus.

This is a fashionable event, so dress in whatever makes you feel best. Our suggested attire for the Derby DayClub is Outdoor Elegant.
For women, we suggest dresses, skirts, dress pants and blouse or jeans and a cardigan with comfortable shoes such as flats, wedges, boots or block heels for easy walking. Please avoid stiletto-style shoes as they will sink in the grass.
