135th Kentucky Derby – May 2, 2009

The 135th Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2009 at Churchill Downs in Lousville, Kentucky.

This race is the first leg of the Triple Crown, a feat not achieved since Affirmed won it in 1978.

Betting is already underway on the Kentucky Derby at most sportsbooks and racebooks. Justin Dew puts Pioneerof the Nile, I Want Revenge, and Desert Party as the top three horses in the field.

Check out these 4- and 5-star rated racebooks that accept players from the United States. Most offer a 10% bonus on initial deposits from new players as well as cash rebates on all horseracing wagers (ranging from 3% to a whopping 8% at Horsebetting.com).
