No shortage of multirace betting options on Oaks card


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – This is the 22nd year for the Oaks-Derby Double, the innovative two-day wager that has linked Churchill’s two major races every year since 1996. The minimum bet is $1.

The Oaks also leads off a pick-three wager (50-cent minimum) leading into the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic and the Derby. The first year for that wager was 2009. In 2016, all-sources handle was $2,537,553 on the double and $790,825 on the pick three.

Other available wagers for the 13-race Oaks card include three pick fives (races 3-7, 7-11, 9-13), four pick fours (races 2-5, 4-7, 8-11, 10-13), a $2 pick six (races 6-11), a $1 super high five on the Oaks, and the usual rolling doubles and pick threes.
