  • My wife and i take our same clients every year. We go Oaks day and Derby day for the last 7 years. Last year we hit the superfecta for 49k!!! Security took us to the top floor gave us champagne and counted it out in 100 dollar bills. We got a escort all the way to the car. We park the same place, eat the same food and for 2 days every year we party like rockstars!!!!!

  • Jay, it sounds like you should contact the producers!
