Forte, who’s steered by jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. and trained by two-time Derby winner Todd Pletcher, was the 9/2 favorite to finish first in the Run for the Roses. But Forte is now out, sratched from the race, leaving Tapit Trice and Angel of Empire, who previously sat at 5/1 as the favorites.

Derma Sotogake (8/1), Two Phil’s (8/1), and Kingsbarns (12/1) are also high on the list of Derby contenders heading into Saturday’s race. Regardless of which horse wins, make sure your Derby betting is on DK Horse, DraftKings’ exclusive horserace betting app.

DraftKings Promo: DK Horse Offers $250 Kentucky Derby Deposit Bonus

DraftKings is finally in the horseracing game, teaming up with Churchill Downs Inc. to create DK Horse. While DK Horse and DraftKings Sportsbook are separate entities, both allow eligible bettors to score cold, hard cash throughout one of the best weekends on the sports calendar.

First, any DK-approved customer can use our links to secure the sportsbook’s “Bet $5, Get $150” offer. This promotion gives qualified users an instant $150 in bonus bets after placing at least $5 on any game or event listed on DraftKings Sportsbook. In other words, you’ll receive an instant payout worth as much as 30-to-1, even if your opening wager falls flat.

While DraftKings Sportsbook is a top-tier sports betting platform, it doesn’t offer horseracing. That’s where DK Horse comes in. After signing up for a regular DraftKings account, head to DK Horse to bet on the Kentucky Derby using one of several in-app offers and promotions. The most notable promotion is the 100% deposit bonus, where players who play through their initial deposit twice will receive a cash bonus worth up to $250.

However, bettors in Florida, Kentucky, Minnesota, Montana, and Washington can’t join DraftKings Sportsbook to claim the “Bet $5, Get $150” DraftKings promo.

Additional DK Horse Offers

DK Horse has a few in-app promotions running through the weekend. First, the “Derby Bet Back” offer gives bettors up to $10 back on their first Kentucky Derby winner bet if their qualifying horse still finishes inside the top three. Players can also grab the “Exacta Bet Back” offer, which guarantees a $5 cash bonus after wagering as least $20 in Exacta bets (selecting top-two finishers in exact order) at Churchill Downs.

The offers don’t stop after the most exciting two minutes in sports are up. DK Horse’s “Sunday Bet Bonus” pays $10 to customers who wager at least $50 on any eligible tracks this Sunday.
