Last year, more than $140 million was spent on wagers for the Kentucky Derby. To say this is a big event, is an understatement. It’s only the biggest race of the year!

Many people, unaffiliated with the sport, will place bets on the horse that they think will win. Whether it be the name of the horse that they like, because someone tells them to, or just an educated guess, a lot of money will be both lost and won this way.

Here’s a rundown of how to wager your bets on the Kentucky Derby if you’re just a beginner.

If you feel like your horse is definitely going to win, or at least place in the top three, place a $2 win-place-show bet.

This kind of racetrack bet is known as an “across the board” bet.

If your horse finishes third, chances are, you won’t lose all of your $6, only some.
