The excitement begins when you place your wager
At Kentucky Downs, you can place your wager with the mutuel teller or at a self-service machine. If you’re a beginner, we recommend you place your wager with the teller. To place your wager, you need to provide the mutuel teller with the following:
- The name of the racetrack (if you are wagering on a race at a different track)
- The race number
- How much you’d like to wager
- The type of wager you’d like to place
- The horse’s program number
The teller will give you your wagering ticket. If your wager wins, collect your winnings from the teller!
