You can bet the Kentucky Derby online from Indiana in the comfort of your home at any one of the internationally licensed racebooks, none of which will ever require a social security number.

There are two major horse racing tracks in Indiana, not accessible to much of the state. Hoosier Park, located in Anderson, about an hour northeast of Indianapolis and Indiana Downs, situated just outside Indianapolis in Shelbyville.

Most Hoosiers will be betting the Kentucky Derby from their home.  Of course some are located convenient enough to Churchill Downs right on the Kentucky border. 

Hoosier Park will be hosting a Kentucky Derby simulcast party.  There will also be a a Kentucky Derby $10,000 Mega Bet drawing, hat promotion, giveaways, drink specials, and more.

Advanced wagering on the Kentucky Derby, a $2 Million Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds and the first leg of the Triple Crown, will begin on Friday, May 5 at 1 p.m. The Kentucky Derby Day race card begins at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 6 with the Derby set for Race 12, going off at approximately 6:46 p.m.

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