Bodines Is Open

Bodines Casino opened today. I wasn’t able to go because I had the baby with me all day, but I’m sure I’ll be able to check it out one of these days.


  1. Greetings,
    Bodine’s partner Mike Pegram is also well known as the owner of
    throughbred racehorses. He had one nice horse named “Only in Reno”
    Mike was the owner of the 1998 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Real Quiet. From Wikipedia: He grew up going to the races at Ellis Park Racecourse and Churchill Downs and dreamed of someday owing a Kentucky Derby winner. He also won the 1998 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies with Silverbulletday and after she was voted that year’s Eclipse Award for Outstanding 2-Year-Old Filly, came back in 1999 to win the Kentucky Oaks. Among his other horses, Pegram owned Captain Steve, High Stakes Player, Queen of Money, Miss Gibson County, Wheeler Oil, Argolid, Favored One, Arches of Gold, and The Texas Tunnel. Pegram became successful as an owner of a number of McDonald’s restaurant franchises in the state of Washington and Arizona, a business that his father, Jim, had been involved with. Pegram has since moved his restaurant empire to Phoenix, where he lives part-time.
