It's being billed as the "First Ever Belmont Stakes Block Party," and you're invited!

The brand new Double Down in the One 16 Sports Bar & Grill is Idaho Falls' official Triple Crown party headquarters, with pari-mutuel betting on horse racing action from across the country, including Belmont Park. Plenty of big-screen TVs, big cash payoffs, and prize giveaways.

California Chrome, the great son of Idaho's own Lucky Pulpit, has a chance to make history with the first Triple Crown since 1978. Watch and wager on the Belmont Stakes at the Double Down.

The Double Down in the One 16 Sports Bar & Grill is located at 3078 Outlet Blvd. in Idaho Falls. Open 11:00 a.m. to midnight; new menu; live music; outdoor patio.

Simulcasting at the Double Down is managed by IdaRacing at Sandy Downs and IMRE as part of the new law in Idaho that allows race tracks to take their simulcast licenses off-site. Previously, simulcasting could only take place inside race track facilities.
