The Manitoba Derby is set to take place at Assiniboia Downs race track on this long weekend Monday here in Canada. The Manitoba Derby is the most prestigious race held in the province each year and this race is sure to pack Assiniboia Downs on Monday evening. Derby Day is always a hit and this year the people of Winnipeg will be treated to a great race that features Prayforpeace as the favourite in the race at 7/5 odds. Great Escape (2-1), Red Knobs (5-1), and Clancy’s Pistol (6-1) are the other top contenders in this race before the odds lengthen to 20-1 or more for the other four horses in the 8 horse field.

Next up you’ll have to fund your account. You can see some of the deposit methods accepted on our dedicated payment options page.

I personally use Interac for both deposits and withdrawals at Sports Interaction. As a Canadian I’m sure you’re familiar with Interac. It’s very easy to transfer money to and from your bank account.
Select ‘Racebook’ from the top navigation bar on the Sports Interaction website. Then select ‘Canadian Thoroughbred’, which will bring up a drop down menu where Assiniboia Downs will be located. Next select race #6 with a post time of 10:05pm CDT to find the Manitoba Derby.
Below I’ve included a screenshot showing where you will find the Assiniboia Downs racetrack. This screenshot shows an arrow pointing to Woodbine, but on Derby Day, Assiniboia Downs will show up there as well.
Once at the Manitoba Derby race you can go ahead and place your wagers. You’ll see the options for straight, exacta, trifecta, etc. To learn more about what these bets mean check out our horse race betting section.
