Kentucky Derby Week Wagering Menu Introduces Rolling Super Hi 5

Gamblers will be treated with massive pools and a wide variety of wagering opportunities on Kentucky Derby Week that will begin Saturday, April 29 at Churchill Downs.

New on this year's wagering menu will be the debut of the $1 rolling Super Hi 5. If no one correctly picks the first five finishers, the bet will carryover to the next race. Previously, the Super Hi 5 was only offered on the final race each card. This will be a traditional Super Hi 5 bet and not a jackpot.

Kentucky Derby Day will feature four Pick 5s, four Pick 4s and a mandatory payout in the 20-cent Derby City 6 Jackpot.

Last year, the Pick 5 ending in the Kentucky Derby handled $4.65 million while the Pick 4 handled $3.3 million while the Derby City 6 Jackpot handled $2.5 million.

Kentucky Oaks Day will feature four Pick 5s and four Pick 4s. Also featured on Kentucky Oaks Day will be the start of several two-day wagers including the 50-cent Oaks/Old Forester Bourbon Turf Classic/Kentucky Derby Pick 3 (2022 handle $654,766) and the $1 two-day Pick 6 (2022 handle $387,527) that will feature six Grade 1 events over the two days of racing.

The two-day Grade 1 Pick 6 was decreased from a $2 to $1 minimum and will culminate in the $3 million Kentucky Derby (G1). There will be two events Friday: the $750,000 La Troienne (G1) and $1.25 million Kentucky Oaks. On Saturday, the bet will include the $1 million Turf Classic (G1), $750,000 Churchill Downs (GI) and $750,000 Derby City Distaff (G1). The two-day Pick 6 will have a mandatory payout and low 15% takeout.

Other unique wagers on Kentucky Derby Week include the popular Oaks/Derby Double (2022 handle $3.2 million), the 50-cent All Dirt Pick 5 on Kentucky Derby Day (2022 handle $660,093) and the $3 All 3-Year-Old Pick 3 on Kentucky Derby Day (2022 handle $336,650).

Superfecta wagers will be a $1 minimum on Kentucky Derby and Oaks days but will be a 10-cent minimum on all other days.
