DORSET - The Dorset Inn will celebrate Kentucky Derby Day this year on May 4th with a special Derby Day Dinner including live betting on the race.

Once again they will be donating half of the proceeds of the betting to The Dorset Theatre Festival.

"We are thrilled to have the Dorset Inn's support once again. My family is from Kentucky and I love an excuse for a mint julep and a great southern style dinner," said DTF Artistic Director, Dina Janis.

Hors d'oeuvres and drinks begin in the bar at 5 p.m. where Inn guests can watch a live stream of the race, and listen to hot jazz.

Post time will be 6:20 p.m. for all bets.

Directly after the race a 4-course Kentucky themed dinner will be served in the Dining Room.

The cost is $57 per person (+ tax, gratuity and alcohol).
