Horse Racing in Idaho

It's not an entirely foreign concept. Idaho permits pari-mutuel betting on live and simulcast racing for horses and dogs. There are racetracks and county fairgrounds with live horse racing as well.

Before You Bet: Fun Stats

  • Since 2000, the Florida Derby has been the most successful final prep race, producing 6 winners.  Forte, the 2023 Kentucky Derby winner, was the winner of this year's Florida Derby.
  • Jockey Florent Geroux won the Kentucky Derby in 2021 and this year will be riding Jace's Road, a 50-1 long shot who finished third in the Louisiana Derby.
  • Flavien Prat was another winning jockey in the Kentucky Derby with Country House in 2019.  He will be riding Angel of Empire (8-1) in this year's race.
  • 49 out of the 141 Kentucky Derbys have been won by the favorite, just over one-third of the time. 
  • John Velazquez is among the most successful Kentucky Derby jockeys riding in this year's big race.  He won with 2011 (Animal Kingdom), 2017 (Always Dreaming), and 2020 (Authentic).  He will be riding Reincarnate, a third place finisher in both the Arkansas Derby and Rebel Stakes.
