Frank E Kilroe Mile Hcp

Remarkably not one mare had won the Frank E Kilroe Mile Handicap in over 50 runnings, as of 2010.

That all changed when Proviso won the eight furlong race, held at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, California, in 2010.

First run in 1960, the Kilroe Mile has a rich history in American thoroughbred racing and some great names have won the race.

The Frank E Kilroe Mile Handicap will be next run on March 11 and will have a purse of USD $400,000.

How to bet on the Frank E Kilroe Mile Hcp

Punters in the USA have very limited options when it comes to wagering on horse racing online. The pick of the bookies for the gallops is Bovoda, which is a brand owned by the powerful Bodog company.

The rest of the world has plenty of options to punt on American thoroughbred racing, with global giants such as Bet365 and Ladbrokes offering betting on most meetings held in the USA.
