I have such magical memories surrounding The Kentucky Derby that I wanted to pass some of the awesome on to you. I wish I could fly all of you here to experience the excitement and traditions first hand, but since I can't, I still wanted you to be able to experience the thrill of the race. So, I'm offering up the following:
A 137th Kentucky Derby Festival Collectors Pin
An official 137th Kentucky Derby Program
A $20.00 win bet on the Derby horse of your choosing
so you can cheer on your horse during the big race.
You're probably wondering how much a $20.00 win bet on the Kentucky Derby might pay. Well, the lowest payout of any Derby winner for a $20.00 bet was $28.00 and that happened twice back in the 1940s. The highest? Donerail paid $1829.00 on a $20.00 win bet in 1913, sent off at odds of 91.45-1, which is still the highest paying winner ever in the Kentucky Derby. Odds are this years winner will fall between the two. So what are you waiting for?
I usually open up all my giveaways to my international followers, but unfortunately, this one is for US only.
