Kentucky Derby’s reputation of being the most prestigious horse race in the U.S. makes it the most awaited sporting event of the year. From featuring 3-year-old Thoroughbreds competing at a racetrack distance of two kilometers to attracting thousands of spectators every year, the race is an ideal place for sports bettors.
But this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans had to wait longer for the 146th edition of the Kentucky Derby. This unexpected situation has forced the Kentucky Derby authority to re-schedule the race from May 2 to September 5.
Delay in the race and changed circumstances, coupled with the introduction of new racehorses, made it a bit confusing for bettors about where to place their bets. Understanding their anxiousness, the online betting platform Kentucky Derby Online Betting released an informational guide to assist bettors with picking horses and placing bets.
Apart from that, bettors will get an idea of the participants of the 2020 Kentucky Derby, the top online racebooks, and changes to the race following the pandemic. Other details crucial to horse racing that the guide will include are:
- A complete list of betting odds
- Placing bets online using Bitcoins
- Information about remaining races of the Triple Crown
- Kentucky Derby handicapping odds and picks
This is the first time that the Kentucky Derby, which had a history of taking place on the first Saturday of May every year at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky, will be held in September.
Kentucky Derby Online Betting’s Operations Manager Kevin Browne believes that with a few days left before the race begins, this informative guide will be of great help for bettors to make informed decisions to place and win the bets.
Though a new schedule and new horses at the race were quite worrisome for bettors, this informational betting guide would give them better odds of winning their bets.
