2017 Kentucky Derby Promotions

We'll have a full menu of great promotions for the Kentucky Derby, but in the meantime, you can earn FREE bets on the Kentucky Derby just by playing the prep races!

Bet a winner in any Road to the Kentucky Derby races (from January 16 through April 15) and we'll give you a free bet  on that horse to win the Kentucky Derby.

Make a win bet of $10 or more with BetAmerica (online, mobile web or app) on any of the prep races, and if your horse races to glory in that race not only will you get paid out, you also get a free bet on that horse in the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs!


Opt-in once for all the prep races!
