    luxury suites are surprisingly affordable outside of the derby -- book one ahead and ask for pat to man the room.

    14 $ is a bit steep but it is interesting learning about the history. If you go once every 10-15 years then it's worth it. Great for young kids.

    NO Credit cards in the paddock or infield. I wasn't in the clubhouse but from what I saw no credit cards for betting or food/drink. There are ATM's so make sure you at least have your debit card.

    Make sure you use the betting app. Makes for a much more enjoyable experience. Just don't ask the paramutual clerks about the app. They hate it because "it is taking their jobs."
