Where Can I Bet the Kentucky Derby Online From New York State?

You can bet the Kentucky Derby online from New York even before the online sportsbooks come online.

The US Supreme Court ruled to abolish sports betting prohibition last May.

New York has a number of race tracks, but as a large state, much of the population has limited access.  None of these tracks directly take online or mobile horse bets, but offshore sites are more than happy to take your bets.

The tracks include Aqueduct, Saratoga, Vernon Downs, Finger Lakes, Belmont and Monticello.

Off Track Betting sites in the state were shut down a few years ago.

In 2010, about 50 parlors around New York City were shuttered. Some 1,000 employees lost their jobs. And a revenue stream that had funneled tens of millions of dollars a year to breeders, track owners and related businesses dried up.

There are advantages to betting at either internationally licensed online racebooks or US-based racebooks that we review below.
