Could another Arkansas Derby winner pull off a Triple Crown victory this year? Last year’s spectacular American Pharoah captured the Arkansas Derby, and stole our hearts as he went on to win the prestigious Triple Crown. Watching him race was nothing short of breath taking!
This year’s Racing Festival of the South begins April 13, and you’ll see great horses all week. The Apple Blossom Race is on Friday, and the Arkansas Derby on Saturday April 16 completes the local racing season. You’ll see some of the finest jockeys, trainers and horses compete.
Don’t forget your beautiful hats, women! Come to watch the people, the horses, and experience the best of springtime in Hot Springs. We’d love to welcome you to our cozy Hot Springs inn, and currently there is limited availability. We encourage dinner reservations to be made early, since our city is brimming with visitors for the Derby.
