The next jackpot could be yours! With hundreds of historical horse racing machines, you’re sure to find a favorite at Kentucky Downs. We offer over 600 Exacta Systems terminals with a total of 31 different pari-mutuel wagers. Correctly predict the finishing position of as many of the horses from the three historical horse races as you can, and you could be on your way to a jackpot.

Pari-Mutuel Wagering

Rather than playing against the house, pari-mutuel wagering allows you to wager against other patrons. All wagers are combined in a collective pool.
