Bet On Delaware Park Racetrack Races

When it comes to betting on US horse racing, there’s an opportunity to regularly enjoy Delaware Park odds, with Delaware Park race cards being made available by this American race track and there are lots of high-profile races that take place.

Delaware Park Racetrack was actually built in 1937 and has stood the test of time, with this American racecourse now the only one who holds thoroughbred meetings in the state of Delaware, with the Delaware Park races taking place between May and October each year.

Bet on the Delaware Park Races including Delaware Handicap

The jewel in the crown when it comes to the Delaware Park betting is the Delaware Handicap, with this being the only Grade 2 race that takes place at this American racetrack. The encounter takes place in mid-July, with fillies and mares aged three or older competing on the dirt track.

The Delaware Handicap is run over a distance of 1.25 miles and was originally called the New Castle Handicap, with the race actually becoming the richest for fillies and mares in the world in 1953 when $100,000 was put up as a purse.

Dunbar Road won this race as a four-year-old in 2020, while trainer Bill Mott landed a double in 2018 and 2019 with horse Elate, while champion filly Songbird was successful in 2017 and is the shortest-priced horse to ever win the race when obliging at Delaware Park odds of 1/9.

Enjoy Delaware Park race cards for Grade III Races

Like the Delaware Handicap, the Delaware Oaks takes place in mid-July as part of the same meeting on the Delaware Park racecard, with this race available for fillies and mares who compete on the dirt track over 8.5 furlongs.

This race generally has a purse of around $300,000 and is open to three-year-old horses, with the race having been in operation since 1938 and there are lots of Delaware Park betting odds for the encounter leading up to the race.

The Kent Stakes is another Grade III three-year-old encounter and this is run over nine furlongs, with a purse of around $200,000 for the winner. Christophe Clement has been successful as a trainer in two of the previous four years thanks to victories for Frostmourne and Gufo.

The final Grade III horse race that will appear on the Delaware Park race cards throughout the season is the Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes and that has been won by a horse called Gentle Ruler in 2019 and 2020.
