FanDuel Sportsbook is celebrating this year’s Kentucky Derby by hosting events for locals in addition to offering its horse racing wagering product.
Fans with FanDuel Sportsbook accounts are able to wager on the Triple Crown event using their sportsbook wallet. That single-wallet integration sets FanDuel’s horse racing offering apart. FanDuel TV will also run the “Up & Adams” show with Kay Adams hosted directly from the Derby grounds.
Additionally, clicking PLAY NOW on the banner below will allow bettors to accept a promo offer available for FanDuel players. First-timers betting on the Kentucky Derby will receive a $20 No Sweat Bet. This is insurance on their initial wager on the race. Should they lose, FanDuel will grant up to $20 back as a racing bonus. Customers can use it on any race before June 12, 2023.

FanDuel Kentucky Derby Celebration
FanDuel is currently the only sportsbook that allows bettors to use the same wallet for horse racing and sports betting. Sports betting customers do not need to deposit into a separate account to bet on the Kentucky Derby.
“As an Official Sports Wagering Partner of the Kentucky Derby, we’re leveraging the power of our innovative betting platform and our unrivaled history in horse racing to bring fans a truly integrated experience for the race as the only sportsbook where you can bet on the race,” said Andrew Moore, general manager, racing at FanDuel. “Last year, we became the only sportsbook to offer a single wallet platform that allows fans to bet on horse racing and see that innovation as an avenue to introduce new audiences to horse racing.”
The wallet features a fully integrated system between sports betting and horse racing. The payouts from wins will allow bettors to take racing wins and bet on sports. The bonus from the No Sweat Bet promo is designated for horse racing, however.
“We’re thrilled to deliver Churchill Downs’ premium content, led by the 149th running of the Kentucky Derby on May 6, to FanDuel’s vast base of sports betting and daily fantasy customers with a single account and single wallet,” said Churchill Downs Racetrack President Mike Anderson. “This is an exciting partnership that’s a sure winner for everyone.”
