Belmont Stakes Futures

What is a future wager? For the purpose of the Belmont Stakes, a future wager is when you place a bet on which horse you think will win finish first to win the race. Futures wagers are available in Las Vegas sportsbooks. The odds and payout for a futures wager are different from the actual day of the race.

Many websites like US Racing, TVG, TwinSpires, Xpressbet and Bet America offer future wagers for the Kentucky Derby. Some companies will also offer "advance wagering" a couple days before the race. The difference between advance wagering and a future wager is that you are betting into the parimutuel field.
