SAHARA Las Vegas invites guests to attend “Running of the Horses,” a one-of-a-kind derby viewing party at AZILO Ultra Pool. Featuring live coverage of the derby on the 240-foot LED video wall, performances by DJs Roger Gangi and FlowFly as well as refreshing libations including Old Forester Bourbon Kentucky Peach Mojitos, the Las Vegas Strip’s most desirable new pool will provide an ideal destination for sports and entertainment fans. Guests can also don complimentary derby hats provided by Old Forester Bourbon while supplies last.
To get into the competitive spirit, visitors are also invited to participate in the poolside “Turtle Derby” game.

Guests can also watch the official 2022 “Kentucky Turtle Derby” airing on the 240-foot video wall. Prop bets will also be available through the DraftKings mobile sites.
