IdaBet Loves Our Military Veterans & Keeneland Hosts Military Day Honoring Veterans & Their Families

IdaBet.com loves our military and has special ties to retired and disabled veterans as some of our very own team members are this very thing – and awesome we might add!  We are absolutely certain that many of our players have military backgrounds as well and we thank you for your service, sacrifice and patriotism.

We also want to thank Keeneland for honoring military veterans (active & inactive) and their families today with special events planned for the entire family.  Way to go Keeneland!
