Record-Breaking Bets On 2019 Triple Crown Races This Year

Huge Betting Expected on 2019 Triple Crown Races

With this year’s 2019 Triple Crown races just around the corner, online bookies are getting set to make the most profit from derby horse races they have ever seen., the leading online sportsbook software in the industry, states that online bookies will have over $145 million up for grabs from the Kentucky Derby alone.

“The Triple Crown races are one of the busiest and profitable times for online bookies.” explained Nate Johnson, Product Manager of “Online bookies had a total of $139.2 million up for grabs last year. With recent legalization and an increased betting wave from across the country, PayPerHead online bookies are expected to make a record-breaking profit this year.”

The 2019 Triple Crown races are comprised of three races within the United States, the Kentucky Derby, the Princess Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. In order to win the Triple Crown, a horse and jockey must win all three races combined. This makes the Triple Crown one of the most prestigious trophies and titles in thoroughbred racing.

“Placing bets on the speculated Triple Crown trophy winner is one of the longest betting traditions in the United States.” explained Johnson. “Last year, the sports betting industry saw hundreds of millions of dollars in bets placed on the Kentucky Derby alone. This year, we can anticipate another record-breaking number due to factors like sports betting legalization.”

Throughout the past year, sports betting legalization has played a significant role in the growth of the sports betting industry. Even though placing bets on horse races has been legal for quite some time in the United States, states that more Americans are becoming online bookies and starting their own businesses.

“PayPerHead’s online bookies can make up to $10,000 in their first month. As the stigma of online sports betting begins to disappear, we’re seeing an influx of new users from across the country.  With the Triple Crown races being one of the largest sports betting events of the year, our online bookies have great potential to grow their current books and profit.”

The last horse to win the Triple Crown was American Pharoah in 2015. Currently, online bookies are predicting that Game Winner, War of Will, Signalman and Improbable have the closest chance to winning Triple Crown in 2019. If one of these top four thoroughbreds wins two of the three Triple Crown races, we can expect hundreds of millions in bets across the online bookie industry.
