If you are betting on yourself it is not gambling. Calcuttas are not legal in many states for that reason. You are betting on someone else by buying that team.

... how do options differ from say "poker" which one court recently declared a game of skill, yet still considered gambling...

Options are not gambling in the theoretical sense since your performance affects the outcome.

You are already paying an entry fee which may or may not include prize money. An option is just an increase in that expense.

A Lewis purse may be considered gambling since one of the determining factors is how the numbers fall, and you don't control that.

In Kentucky, gambling is illegal. However, betting on horse races in general is allowed as wagering on a horse race is considered to be "an exercise in judgement."
