Call me late to the party, but it just occurred to me today that the big Mayweather/Pacquiao fight on May 2 is the same day as the Kentucky Derby. I know lots of people like to have action on the biggest horse race of the year, even if they don't follow horse racing, and I know room rates went through the roof when the fight of the decade was announced. I have no doubt that plenty of people will wager something on the fight while they're in town, as it will be what many, many people will talk about. So this may be purely speculative, but I assume a few of you have been in town for a previous Derby or a fight of this magnitude. Here are a few questions I've had as a result of today's revelation: • How substantial is the increase in wagering at sports books for the Kentucky Derby? • Almost every weekend in Vegas is a major weekend, how much bigger of a deal is a Derby weekend? • Plenty of high rollers are now coming to Vegas to see the fight. Why do people want to be in Vegas for the fight if they don't have a ticket into the arena? And something I never considered before today, although it has nothing to do with May 2: •*Is wagering on MMA fights a big deal? And finally: •*If you will be in Vegas on May 2 (and not because you live there), why? Did you get lucky and book a weekend trip before this fight was scheduled? Are you a habitual parimutuel gambler who loves to be at a sports book for the race? Are you a high roller who plans to attend the fight? Thanks everyone!
