The 2022 Kentucky Derby is scheduled for Saturday May 7th and even though that date is months away, fans have an opportunity to wager the “Run for the Roses” from January 21-23 via Pool #2 of the Future Wager. Fans can most likely get better odds on a potential Derby contender than they would normally get on Derby Day itself.
There is a Derby prep that weekend — the Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds. That serves as a stepping stone to their other major Derby preps — the Risen Star and Louisiana Derby.
Fans can wager the Future pool online at TVG.com, Xpressbet.com, Twinspires.com and NYRABets.com, at a Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in New Kent, Richmond, Hampton, Vinton, Dumfries and Collinsville, an at a VA-Horseplay Off Track Betting (OTB) Center in Chesapeake (Buckets Bar & Grill) and Henrico (Breakers Sports Grille).
