Seriously, how many people in their right minds would do business with something called Derby Deals?
One who did was Kathy Watkins, of Jacksonville, Texas. She said she paid $5,000 to Scott Davis, an Oldham County magistrate, for a luxury package that included five Kentucky Derby tickets according to the Courier-Journal.
“We would be sitting with movie stars, celebrities. We would eat at exclusive restaurant and have access to the Churchill Downs grounds, as well as every floor,” said Watkins, who was apparently among several customers left empty handed after dealing with Davis.
Yeah, and you would become lifelong friends with all those movie stars and celebrities after sharing a Derby together.
This is only relevant here because Davis said he gave University of Louisville assistant basketball coach Steve Masiello cash for the tickets. Davis says about $70,000 was involved in the transactions, and Davis is suing because he said the tickets never materialized.
Such a sleazy story, wreaking of greed, naivete and waste. One has to wonder why anyone would let themselves get sucked into such a situation. The Derby is a nice event, but come on.
