Kentucky Derby

Each spring the top three-year-olds in training go through a grueling three race series, starting with the two most exciting minutes in sports, the Derby at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky and it is considered one of the best horse races all year to wager on.

The Kentucky Derby is contested on the first Saturday of May each year, it is usually the first time the young runners have ever been asked to go 1 1/4 miles against a large field of their peers that usually number 20, and in front of more than 100,000 fans.

In the last six runnings of the Kentucky Derby, we have seen two winners pay over $100 to win, Giacomo ($102.60) in 2005 and Mine That Bird ($103.20) in 2009. With so much attention by the mainstream media, sports fans that do not normally play the horses contribute to the betting pools, which consistently make for outstanding wagering opportunities.
