    Done it once. I got lucky with being on time and such. But I understand why they have their reputation. I once booked a trip on a Wednesday and departed Friday. Not a lot of inexpensive options at that point.

    Can't be as bad as Allegiant can it?

    Good luck on your trip @JSR1968

    Upside to Allegiant is they fly out of minor airports that others may not serve or are very expensive. Spirit makes Southwest feel like Emirates Airlines.

    We have a direct Allegiant flight to Vegas. The times and days aren't awful but they're not very flexible either.

    I always just pay the extra $100 and go on Delta because the reliability is there. I gamble when I'm in Vegas. I don't want to gamble on whether I'll get there and back in a timely fashion.

    Vegas can often be over structured. If I may be so bold....I suggest you find time for beer.

    I am officially waving the white flag!!!

    I tried everything to change my luck but had ZERO luck this trip!

    -$400 on VP and only one quad!!!

    -$50 on horses and nada!

    I am tucking my tail and will not chase. Got some beers and will watch TV in the room the rest of the afternoon/night.

    Did have some good food at Public House @ Luxor. Philly Cheesesteak egg rolls and wings. Texted Tring because I got a kick out of them charging more for Goose Island IPA than Lagunitas...

    Looking back on my quick trip I still had a good time but never felt like I had a fighting chance from a gambling standpoint. Oh well there is always next time!

    It was a great vibe on Saturday with fans from all the teams in town for two conference basketball tournaments and a TON of 311 fans for the concert on Sat and Sun.

    I was busy and missed this past weekend's prep races.

    Sorry you had a losing trip, but that is better than no trip!

    I think the replays are worth watching. I wasn’t impressed with the Tampa race. The NY race was good but it was a one turn mile. I’m not sure if the winner is that good but he might be a 7F horse.

    The Santa Anita race was excellent and both the top 2 are very good
