Posts Huge Amount of Wagering Options for Wide-Open Belmont Stakes

June 9, 2006

Online gaming giant Bovada announced today a record number of unique proposition wagers for the 138th running of the Belmont Stakes. The third leg of the Triple Crown is set to go off Saturday at Belmont Park with a field of unknowns chasing the $1-million purse.

"Without the injured Kentucky Derby betting winner Barbaro and Preakness winner Bernardini, whose team chose to pass on the Belmont, just about any horse can win the race," says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bovada. "With so many contenders, betting action is being spread across the board and we anticipate one exciting race that offers plenty of value to bettors."

Without a prohibitive favorite as we've seen in past years, several horses in the field of 12 will attract bettors. That could create heftier-than-usual payouts for the 1.5-mile race that's often called "the test of a champion".

Bovada's introduction of its enhanced online horse racing software and accompanying payout structure, which pays out per wager instead of dollar amount, has ensured a profitable racing season for many Bovada customers. One bettor recently walked away with $29,919.50 for her $1 Superfecta bet.

In May, Bovada announced an exclusive partnership with the Brother Derek racing team, which brought the Bovada brand to the Kentucky Derby. This partnership was a first of its kind. For the Preakness Stakes, Bovada sponsored five jockeys, each of whom sported Bodog-branded racing uniforms throughout the day of races at Pimlico Racecourse.

An example of one of Bovada's more popular proposition wagers offered on this year's Belmont Stakes is:
