FanDuel roll out new sports betting promotions ahead of Kentucky Derby


FanDuel, North America’s premier online gaming company, and the only sportsbook app where fans can place a bet on the Kentucky Derby, is sprinting out of the starting gate to help make the 150th “Run for the Roses” the most memorable yet.

Through a combination of offers, activations, and industry-leading coverage, FanDuel will provide fans with unparalleled access for the race, on the ground and beyond.

FanDuel is the first and only sportsbook to offer wagering on horse racing alongside traditional sports book wagering with a single account and single wallet, allowing customers to wager on the Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky Oaks, and all the races from Churchill Downs on Oaks and Derby Days. FanDuel will offer a “$20 No Sweat Bet” on the Kentucky Derby to all new and existing customers. Any customer can place a single horse win wager on the Kentucky Derby through the FanDuel Sportsbook or the FanDuel Racing app and get up to $20 back as a racing bonus if they don’t win. Racing fans can find betting markets for the Kentucky Derby in just a few taps when they open the FanDuel Sportsbook app and then click the horse racing icon. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our loyal audience live racing and unprecedented access during Derby Week on FanDuel TV. We thank Churchill Downs Inc. for our partnership.” said Kevin Grigsby, Executive Producer and SVP of FanDuel TV. “There is no bigger event in horse racing than the Kentucky Derby and FanDuel TV will be there for every step of the action.”

FanDuel TV’s “Coverage of Kentucky Derby Week” will feature extensive coverage from racing’s most respected experts and handicappers including Todd Schrupp, Christina Blacker, Michael Joyce, Gabby Gaudet, Scott Hazelton, Matt Bernier, Andie Biancone, Caleb Keller, Caton Bredar and the “voice of the Derby” Larry Collmus. To help keep bettors up to date, FanDuel TV will monitor Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks contenders in their final workouts and will bring fans closer to the action than ever before with unique access and exclusive interviews with trainers, jockeys and key newsmakers.
