Given Arizona’s equestrian history and reputation for hosting premiere automotive events, The Bulleit Bourbon Derby DayClub at Turf Paradise is yet another example of Arizona celebrating horsepower with four wheels or four legs.


Sanderson Lincoln in Phoenix returns to this luxury derby party one to provide an added element of horsepower. Sanderson is the premiere Lincoln dealership in the Valley and its luxury cars and SUV’s will be on display next to the trackside tents allowing patrons to enjoy four wheeled and four legged horsepower at the same time.

It’s the only Kentucky Derby Party in Arizona that is just yards away from live horseracing action at Turf Paradise in Polo Party-style. The Bulleit Bourbon Derby DayClub includes air-cooled tents, Turf Paradise private betting terminals, and televisions to watch the local races as well as the Kentucky Derby itself. The party doesn’t end there. A convenient, no-host bar will also be located inside the tent for Mint Juleps, champagne, cocktails and additional refreshments.
