Keeneland Will Offer Drive-Through Betting For Derby & Oaks

Keeneland PR

Keeneland says people wanting to place bets on the Kentucky Derby can make a wager in a drive-thru at the Lexington track. The Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Oaks were postponed to Sept. 4 and 5 this year at Churchill Downs in Louisville due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The races will be run without fans. Keeneland said drive-thru betting will be offered on all the races from Churchill Downs for those two days. The drive-thru will be behind the Keeneland Entertainment Center and will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Patrons will complete a health screening and temperature check at Gate 1.
