There’s plenty to do at Delaware Park even after the Delaware Handicap and races are over. Guests can enjoy the Casino at Delaware Park, which includes live table games and full service tournament and cash poker rooms. All the classic casino games are available, including Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Texas Hold ‘em, Three and Four Card Poker, Pai Gow Poker, and Mississippi Stud. There are also plenty of slot machines available. On race day, the Casino will feature a Disco Dance Party from 9:00 in the evening until 1:00 in the morning at which there will be a DJ and plenty of dancing.

There are also plenty of dining options available at Delaware Park, like the Legends Restaurant that offers a fine dining experience featuring fresh seafood, steaks, famous Crab Cakes Delaware, a full bar, and an expanded wine list. For a more low-key environment, try Picciotti’s Pizza and Craft Beer or Del Cap Room.

For a fashionable day at Delaware, try the cut-outs trend. There have been peek-a-boo cut-outs featured all over the runways this summer fashion season. With this season’s cut-outs, think subtle and modest rather than overtly showy. Try a criss-cross neckline, or show a little sliver of back or an open triangle in the front of your dress.

Whether you are at the Casino or at the races, the cut-out trend is the perfect look for a day at Delaware Park for the 2015 Delaware Handicap!
