$5,000 in Let 8 Ride cash up for grabs beginning Tuesday of Kentucky Derby week
Are you ready to Let 8 Ride this Kentucky Derby week at Churchill Downs? TwinSpires.com is offering players an opportunity to split $5,000 beginning with Tuesday's racing at the Downs. Opt in and place an $8 Win bet in Race 8 on Tuesday (bet as many horses as you like as long as the base wager for each is $8). If you win, parlay your gross payout rounded down to the nearest whole dollar in Race 8 on Wednesday at Churchill, where you may bet only a single horse or entry to Win. If you're alive to Thursday, reinvest your gross payout from Wednesday to Win on a single horse or entry in Race 8 on "Thurby." If you make the bet and lose, you'll split $1,000 in insurance cash. However, if you're live to Friday, parlay your Thursday winnings on a single horse or entry to Win in Race 8 on Kentucky Oaks Day. All players who make the final bet will split the final prize pool of $4,000 -- win or lose. Complete rules, conditions, and other important information can be found here. Tuesday's eighth race is an N2X allowance for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Bettors will have a choice of siding with or against a formidable entry of #1 MIGHTY SCARLETT and #1A KALLIO, both of whom share common ownership. The Chad Brown-trained Might Scarlett was competitive in several graded stakes last season, earning a piece of the purse in the Wonder Again (G3), Belmont Oaks (G1), and Valley View (G3). Kallio actually won at this condition at Gulfstream in February after bypassing her N1X condition, but was outclassed when stretching out to 11 furlongs in the Orchid (G3) last time. The entry of Mighty Scarlett and Kallio was made the 6-5 morning line favorite.
