There are a number of online racebooks accessible from the great state of Alabama for betting the Kentucky Derby.  BetOnline offers a generous welcome bonus ($1000 max bonus) and 7% back on horse losses.

Alabama has very few restrictions when it comes to allowing bets placed on race book sites though it is currently not home to any major horse racing tracks.  It is actually one of the few states that still permits dog racing.

Ironically, the state does have a race utilizing its namesake, the Alabama Stakes.  It takes place in Saratoga Springs, New York however.
