Off to the Races! #UberDerby Bets are On…

May is here! And with the start of spring (well…maybe), comes that favorite event excuse to don gaudy hats, sip mint juleps before 12pm, and get in on some good ol bettin’ fun. Yup – it’s Kentucky Derby time!

Churchill Downs will be painted pastel this Saturday as thousands head down to catch the races. But for those not making the journey to the Bluegrass state, don’t fret! We’re bringing the derby fun to you, Twin Citians, with #UberDerby betting – and BIG Uber credits on the line.

Check out all the fierce competitors below who are hitting the track at the 139th Kentucky Derby, with the credits you’ll be banking if they win. Between now and the firing of the start gun, tweet us @Uber_MSP with #UberDerby and your pick for the win. Once a champ is crowned, all Uberers with the winning horse will receive $$ in the bank by Sunday night.

View stats here, and make your bet! And for those not sure who to go with, just use our super-thorough betting process…pick the horse with the coolest name 🙂

Kentucky Derby 13

  • We’ll DM you for info, and hook up your account with the creds by Sunday night!
