Preakness Betting

Preakness BettingThe Preakness Stakes is a deal made by sportsmen during one late summer evening way back in the year 1968. The organizers of this event decided to hold a special race in order to honor a remarkable occasion. This American flat Thoroughbred race is scheduled to take place annually in Baltimore, Maryland in Pimilco Race Course every third Saturday of May. The Preakness Stakes is raced on the dirt for over nine and a half furlongs. Fillies need 55 kg or 121 lbs while gelding and colts need 57 kg or 126 pounds. This is the US Triple Crown’s second leg after the Kentucky Derby and before the Belmont Stakes. In order for a horse to win the Triple Crown, it should win all of the three legs. A lot of people participate in the Preakness betting because of the event’s thrilling atmosphere. It is a great opportunity to win cash while enjoying the match.

This race’s attendance ranks second in the whole North America and it normally exceeds the attendance of all the other different stake races which include the Kentucky Oaks, the Breeder’s Cup and the Belmont Stakes. The Kentucky Derby still ranks as the number one race when it comes to attendance and the Preakness Stakes trails right after it. If you wish to participate in Preakness betting, there are a couple of ways on how you could do it. You could either place your bets while watching the event live or you could opt to bet by using the internet.
