Rockstar has announced May's various bonuses and other content for Red Dead Online, which, among other things, has some hefty rewards on Horse Races, with 4x RDO$ to be had in Standard Races, 3x Gold for Open Races, and a substantial 5x XP for Target Races. Furthermore, you can tackle the Featured Series Races and earn a free outfit.

You'll also get bonus Capitale, for your efforts.
Further double rewards await in Free Roam Missions, while a free Community Outfit, comprising the Gambler’s Hat, Black Clymene Coat or Hartman Jacket, White Casual Shirtwaist or Everyday Shirt, Bandito Pants, Worn Roper Boots, Woven Pistol Gun Belt, and Woven Pistol Holster, is yours to claim this month.
