VIPhorses.com will offer an incentive to follow the Road to the Kentucky Derby on May 6, offering extra payouts for races en route to Louisville.
“There will be an extra 15 percent return on all win, place and exacta tickets on all 15 preps beginning in March,” announced Fredrik Wadstein, North American Marketing Manager for VIPhorses.com.
The first significant Kentucky Derby preps for 3-year-olds are scheduled March 4 at Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita. Gulfstream offers the $300,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes at 1 1/8 miles and the $150,000 Swale Stakes at seven furlongs while Santa Anita features the $200,000 Santa Catalina Stakes at 1 1/16 miles.
“We also will carry informative horse racing articles about key contenders in many major preps,” Wadstein pointed out.
The 15 percent boost in payoffs applies to eight preps in March and seven in April. For example, those who pick a winner that pays $10 will receive $11.50 or lucky bettors who hit an exacta that returns $100 will pocket $115.
Major preps include graded stakes such a Gulfstream’s $1 million Florida Derby on April 1, the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on April 8 and Keeneland’s $750,000 Blue Grass Stake on April 15.
On top of the 15% payout, VIPhorses.com offers players a 15% Rebate on any net monthly losses incurred while betting on horses. “It’s a Win Win situation at VIPhorses.com because win or lose, you walk away with 15% more on your wager,” said Wadstein.
