Well, it looks like the long, cold winter is finally coming to an end for most of North America. We’re entering horse and greyhound racing season once again. We all know what that means – lots of big races, big promotions and betting action is in store for fans of the racing sports.
That also means it’s time for another monthly roundup of dog and horse racing promotions. There are some great promos to take advantage of as we enter the racing season and the biggest betting sites compete for your business. Here’s what we have to look forward to in coming weeks.

What’s Coming Down the Line at TwinSpires
TwinSpires will be hosting a few promotions over the next month, just in time for the Kentucky Derby.
1 Million Points Kentucky Derby Pool
You can win a share of 1 million TSC Elite Points by placing a wager into the 4th Kentucky Derby Future Wager pool this weekend (March 27-29). Place a future wager on any horse for exactly $15 to Win and you’ll be entered into the pool. If your pick finishes 1st, 2nd or 3rd, you’ll split the 1 million points pool with the other winners.
So what can you do with a whole bunch of TSC Elite Points? I’m glad you asked. You can do all sorts of cool things like redeem them for Brisnet handicapping products, redeem them for wagering credits and move up through the TwinSpires VIP program where you’ll get VIP access to live races, free track admissions and more. It’s quite an in-depth program, but it’s all very useful. Winning this promo will set you up with a lot of good things.
$10,000 Australian Racing Giveaway
TwinSpires would like to welcome you to the Sydney Carnival with a promo that will be giving away $10,000 in cash over five Fridays from March 20th through April 17th. The first Friday has already come and gone, but we have four more Fridays to look forward to.
Each Friday, $2,000 will be split among TwinSpires customers who cash winning $5 show bets in five races on the official contest track. On top of that, you can win an additional $1,000 if you go “five-for-five” by cashing five winning show wagers without a single loss. If nobody wins the $1,000 bonus one week, the bonus will carry over and be added to next week’s bonus.

TVG.com doesn’t go too crazy on promotions, but they do have something to look forward to tomorrow. You’ll want to check back later in the month for more updates over at www.tvg.com. They tend to update their promotions at the last minute. I wish they’d give us more lead time so I could tell you about it here!
Dubai – Florida $5K Payday
On Saturday, March 28th, California Chrome will be competing in the Dubai World Cup while Kentucky Derby hopefuls race in the Florida Derby. Take a crack at both races for a chance to win your share of $5,000. All you have to do is place a win wager of $10 or more on each race. Get them both right and you’ll split $5,000 with the other winners.
I love this types of promos because not only do you get your normal cash from winning, but you get a nice bonus on top of that. Winning this promo would be a great way to cap off the weekend.
