Derby Day 2014 @ Santa Anita Racetrack!

  • Apr 5, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Time to combine a picnic on the grass with horse gambling ya'll. Yep you guessed it...

Derby Day 2014 at is approaching!!!

For those  who haven't attended the previous years, let me briefly recap: I reserved a spot in the BBQ area for the group. Those who paid me $10, I provided them with a ticket/directions/parking pass/program for the day at the races. We packed up coolers, picnic baskets, etc. for the day (alcohol too—discretely packed). We met up at the racetrack. We breezed through the line (we already had our tickets) and arrived to our pre-reserved tables. And in a nutshell, we had a BLAST betting for the first time, eating, drinking, walking around, mingling, and flirting. It was the best meetup I ever hosted!


Well worth the $10 ($10.60 via by Paypal). Even if you don't want to wager, just come chill out and picnic! LETS ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't forget to get your free program right as you enter the gate.

    April 5, 2014

  • Farris

    Tables are immediately to your left as you come in the gate

    Gates open at 10:30 a.m.
    First race at 12:30 p.m. I plan to arrive no later than 11:30 a.m. Try to be there by noon if you can.
    Park in the lot for Gate 6 closest to the Infield area (very important)
    If you’re bringing alcohol, be discreet, don’t put it in the cooler, security will look in your cooler. I usually mix mine and keep it in a big juice bottle.
    To find the infield area, once past the gates, veer towards the right and head all the way down, past the kiddy area. You will see a bunch of umbrellas and a grassy area, that’s where our group will be. There will be a check-In and a wrist band given to you. The later you arrive, the longer the wait to get a wrist band. Once inside look for a table with a sign on it that says “Young Blacks of LA”.
    If you get lost text me at[masked]
