That derby was built in custom Orlando Florida by a cabinetmaker, Bill Canavan. Other parts came from the original Santa Anita Derbies, made in Ca. We did a lot of modifications to the game in the lighting and signs and the stepping relays.

Thanks for sharing the photos RRSHOW1. Really enjoyed them. I saw your family's equipment booked with Crown Amusements a few years ago in Toledo, OH at the Sports Arena, Memorial Day spot. Nice looking equipment.
