Updated March 2023
DK Horse Welcome Bonus March 2023
  • DK Horse will use the DK Crowns rewards program.
  • Offer live streaming of select races and tracks.
  • Available for both iOS and Android devices.

Disclaimer: DK Horse is not yet live. This preview is speculative based on what is known so far and will be updated when the DK Horse racebook launches.

In November 2022, Churchill Downs Inc. announced it was expanding its TwinSpires portfolio, agreeing to bring a horse racing platform under the DraftKings umbrella. This was Churchill Downs’ second deal with a major sports betting platform, the first being with FanDuel in September 2022.

DraftKings later confirmed the partnership, indicating the project would be dubbed “DK Horse,” a horse racing betting app. It could launch in more than 20 markets by the 2023 Kentucky Derby in May.

The guide below will relay everything we know about DK Horse, including offers, rewards programs, software overview and more.

  • Bonus & promo code: none needed
  • DK Horse betting app: available for iOS and Android devices
  • Available races at DK Horse: still to be determined
  • Live streaming and results: for select tracks and races
  • Deposit and withdrawal methods: full details below

DK Horse Racebook rewards program

DK Horse will use the DK Crowns rewards program. This program also covers daily fantasy sports, sports betting and online casino play.

You earn DK Crowns as you wager money on the platform. You can convert the Crowns into DK Dollars. The conversion rate is $1 in bonus cash for every 550 Crowns.

Promotions and contests at DK Horse

The promotions and contests for DK Horse are not yet known, but DraftKings typically offers new players a 20% deposit bonus worth up to $1,000. To receive your DK Horse bonus funds, you must wager $25 in cash to redeem $1 in bonus funds. Something similar could apply at DK Horse.

When the DK Horse welcome bonus and ongoing promotions are revealed, we’ll break them down for you.

DK Horse betting software

The software for DK Horse is not yet available, and no details have been released at the time of this writing. Based on the DraftKings Sportsbook, DraftKings Fantasy and DraftKings Casino products, we expect DK Horse to work exceptionally well on desktop and mobile. We also anticipate the DK HORSE app will be available for both iOS and Android devices.

Navigating the menu system

As mentioned, no details have been confirmed about the mobile app, so it’s difficult to speculate regarding its appearance or operation.

In looking at the sportsbook app, there’s an account icon in the upper left-hand corner of the app that you can click on to open a menu. This menu has links to withdraw funds and information about the rewards program and help center.

There’s also a menu along the bottom of the app that links back to the homepage, sports and promotions. It wouldn’t be surprising to see something similar at DK Horse.

Watch DK Horse live streaming

Thanks to DK Horse’s partnership with Churchill Downs, it’s safe to assume this betting platform will offer live streaming of select races and tracks. However, we cannot confirm that yet. We will update this section as we learn more about DraftKings’ ability to stream live horse races.

Available races at DK Horse Racebook

In partnership with Churchill Downs Inc., DK Horse will offer races from across the globe as well as prominent US-based races, including:

It’s reasonable to expect more than 150 races.

Other betting markets at DK Horse

While DK Horse offers horse racing betting exclusively, DraftKings offers you three other types of online gaming—daily fantasy sports, sports betting and online casino play. Let’s briefly break down those offerings.

  • DFS: Build a daily lineup in your chosen sport while staying under the salary cap. You can compete in various contests for a buy-in price and a chance to win money based on how your lineup performs.
  • Sports betting: Available in 21 states and jurisdictions, you can bet on numerous sports at DraftKings Sportsbook, including the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and even more niche sports like darts, cricket and cycling.
  • Online Casino: Available in five states, DraftKings Casino offers approximately 1,000 games (varying slightly based on your state). These include classics like slots, blackjack, roulette and baccarat, plus modern games like live dealer, Slingo, virtual sports and more.

Statistics and form database

It’s reasonable to assume that DK Horse will offer some form of racing statistics to help bettors make more educated wagers. The question is what exactly will the DK Horse betting platform offer? Will it be included with standard accounts or cost money to access?

When we have answers to these questions, we will update this page.
