Kentucky Derby’s 150 year anniversary

Held at Churchill Downs Racetrack in Louisville, the Kentucky Derby is run annually on the first Saturday in May and is known as one of the most prestigious events in the world of horse racing. 2024 marks the 150th anniversary of the race

Sports betting launched in Kentucky in September 2023 and at the time Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) confirmed that it would be offering retail sports betting at six of its locations, including the Churchill Downs racetrack. 

“The Kentucky Derby’s rich heritage, dating back to 1875, is truly unmatched,” said Larsen. “From the mint julep tradition to the stirring rendition of ‘My Old Kentucky Home,’ the event embodies Southern charm. We’re incredibly proud to be providing our products to be enjoyed by customers at such an iconic venue.”

Wrigley Field

Meanwhile, Wrigley Field is the home ballpark of the MLB’s Chicago Cubs and also hosts live events and concerts. Betting at Wrigley Field is controlled by DraftKings, which recently launched sports betting at its retail location located adjacent to the stadium.

The 17,000 square-foot facility includes 2,000 square feet of screens which can show up to 25 sports games at once as well as a scrolling ticker displaying odds.

Players at the DraftKings Sportsbook are able to place bets at one of 32 betting kiosks or seven over-the-counter betting windows. Markets on offer include same-game parlays and in-game betting.
