On the first Saturday in May, every May, the infamous Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky, hosts the oldest and most popular consecutively held Thoroughbred horse racing event in the United States and that's when it is time to get in on online Kentucky Derby betting. The first jewel of the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby is, one of the most anticipated events in the horse racing and horse race betting world. So important is this event, in fact, that online Kentucky Derby betting begins as early as January so that the bold, anxious, impatient, or optimistic can be sure to get their fill. In addition to this adventurous bunch, online Kentucky Derby betting brings many to the books to play. If this is your first or second time around participating in the online Kentucky Derby betting bonanza, then here are a few guidelines to help you and your bank/online horse betting website membership account along.
First, it is best to restrain your online Kentucky Derby betting to the horses you like with win odds of 5-1 or more, or place odds of 5-1 or less. Furthermore, stick to straight bets as much as possible, and keep to "win" and "show" type bets when betting straight. These two guidelines have mostly to do with ratios of success of specific odds and specific bets. In terms of percentages these 5-1 guidelines for the bets mentioned are optimal.

Before you do your online Kentucky Derby betting, take a few moments to surf the net for the horses' stats. Anticipating promising bets from such information is known as "form handicapping", a worthwhile procedure which presents you with factual information as to which horses are the most likely to win. The flip side to this, however, is that the best horse is not always the favorite horse in that with so many people betting on the "sure thing" such online Kentucky Derby betting offers less value. Keep your eyes open for the underdogs, or rather the dark horses that have excellent chances but which, for some reason or another, the spot-light ignores.
Finally, do not let the numbers hem you. Part of the charm, and really part of the success in online Kentucky Derby gambling is knowing when to risk it on the horse you love. Oftentimes that feeling in our stomach is strangely connected with the spark of the horse. The only caution to this final tip is to not let betting from the gut become an all the time gig. If you are always betting from the gut that feeling ceases to be special and actually loses you money in the end. With that said good luck and enjoy the races!
