Where Can I Bet the Kentucky Derby Online From Arkansas?

You can bet this year’s Kentucky Derby online from Arkansas via any number of international racebooks that won’t ask for your social security number or report your betting activity to a government entity.

Arkansas plays a special role in the Kentucky Derby prep schedule as host of the final, and some would say the most popular, of the prep races before the main event.  That would be the Arkansas Derby.

This Oaklawn Park race in Hot Springs, Arkansas has been the spring board for horses that go on to win many top events include the Kentucky Derby. Prior to two years ago with American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown, Curlin has been the most decorated of the Arkansas Derby winners with victories in the Preakness Stakes, Breeders Cup and Dubai World Cup.  He would go on to win the Eclipse Award for American Horse of the Year in 2007 and 2008.

Oaklawn is the only track in Arkansas and not easily accessible from all areas of the state.  Silver Springs is an hour away from the state’s largest city and state capital of Little Rock. 

Most folks will be placing their Kentucky Derby bets from their homes but live simulcast of the Kentucky Derby races will occur at Oaklawn May 6 beginning at 9:30 am so bring your smart phones or lap tops to place those bets online.  You can also bet via Oaklawn directly though opening an account at an international online racetrack allows one to take advantage of free cash bonus and cash back offers not readily available at the track itself.

Pavilion seating is $2 every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and holiday Mondays.

From April - December, guests can enjoy a Vegas-style racebook in the Pavilion on the first floor of the Grandstand or enjoy the comfort of the Post Parade Restaurant on Saturdays.
