A year ago, 40-year-old Glen Fullerton of Houston, Texas won $900,000 when Super Saver won the Kentucky Derby at odds of 8-1. Now it’s your turn.
For the second consecutive year, Churchill Downs and NBC have teamed to give one person the opportunity to place a life-changing $100,000 win bet in the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands on Saturday, May 7.
It’s easy to enter. U.S. residents age 21 and up can submit one free online entry to win the $100,000 Derby Dream Bet Sweepstakes at www.NBCSports.com/DreamBet. Contest entries will close Sunday, April 24 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
One lucky fan will be selected at random at the end of the promotion period to win a VIP trip for two to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks (includes airfare, lodging and ground transportation) and the chance to place a $100,000 win bet on any horse in the Kentucky Derby. If the horse wins, they’ll keep the winnings, just as Fullerton did a year ago.
“Participating in the Derby Dream Bet experience will forever be one of my greatest life experiences,” said Fullerton, whose reaction delivered a memorable television moment when captured on NBC Sports’ coverage of the Kentucky Derby. “Winning the bet has provided countless opportunities and made it easier to take care of the responsibilities that come with life. The most challenging aspect is to not let it change me as a person. Thanks to Churchill Downs, NBC and, of course, Super Saver!”
NBC Sports’ exclusive coverage of the 137th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7 will air from 4-7 p.m. ET.
