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


Ohio is home to three thoroughbred race tracks – Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course near Youngstown, ThistleDown Racino in the Cleveland suburbs and Belterra Park Gaming near Cincinnati.

Not all tracks are accessible to Ohio residents and therefore most folks will stay home to place their horse wagers on this year’s Kentucky Derby.

Belterra Park Gaming will feature events that include commemorative giveaways, gaming promotions and wagering opportunities for the Kentucky Oaks, May 5, and the Kentucky Derby, May 6. Live music, a fireworks show and Belterra Park’s annual hat contest.   Wagering windows open at 10 am.  While there, place your bets at any number of international online betting sites as well to take advantage of free cash bonus and money back offers.

Hollywood Gaming will feature a live simulcast of the race with first post time 10:30 am Saturday.  There will be a Derby hat contest, silent art auction, great music and more.
