Farley’s Pub in downtown

Globe is the area’s

premiere off-track

betting location.

After partnering with Turf

Paradise in January, the local

pub became one of 62 off-track

betting locations in Arizona.

Turf Paradise is a horse racetrack

in Phoenix that offers a

live race season from October

to May. This partnership allows

Farley’s to simulcast racing

from racetracks across the

country. Farley’s is open from

Wednesday to Sunday with offtrack

betting available Thursday

through Sunday starting at noon.

During the races, Turf Paradise

provides a para-mutual

teller to take bets and cash out

winners. “No money from the

off-track betting goes to the

bar,” said Lisa Brazil, owner of

Farley’s Pub. “We are just trying

to offer the area something different

to do.”

If interested in placing a bet,

the para-mutual teller can help

by providing a few tips. Those

participating can learn how to

efficiently read the infield tote

board and how to better understand

odds and payouts. “This

is a lot of fun,” said Anna Bejarano.

“We enjoy coming down

for a drink and trying our luck.”

Since introducing the races,

several locals have won big.

With one recorded $10,000 winner,

and several smaller winners,

Farley’s has quickly become the

place to be on a Saturday afternoon.

“Just this past Saturday,

we had a customer bet $12 on

the Belmont and win $2,550,”

said Brazil.
