It is finally time for the yearly Preakness Stakes, and you can get ready for the yearly fun by deciding whom you want to bet on. Some of you might have a favorite already, and some of you might wonder who the experts’ favorites are. We will guide you through it all in order to make your betting experience as pleasant as possible.
This year’s race will be held on the 21st of May, the third Saturday of May, just as usual. Although the Preakness Stakes odds are still changing, the experts have already started to discuss their favorites, but of course, you can make up your own mind and pick and choose the one you would like to bet on.
As mentioned earlier, the race is held on the third Saturday in May every year, two weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks before the final race, Belmont Stakes. Although there have been changes to the dates three times in our history, the race is usually held at the same time every year. The horses are running a distance of 1 3/16 miles on a dirt surface and a left-handed course. The race is the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, and it has been held for the past 146 years. While honor is a great prize, this race has one of the most valuable trophies in the world of sports.
The race will finish off with a festival with music and a great party, making it one of the yearly happenings you have to attend! After two odd years with pandemic restrictions, the event is back on track and better than ever in 2022. You choose how you want to experience this middle jewel of the Triple Crown, but we truly suggest you do experience it in one way or another.
Do you want to bet?
If you want to bet on this year’s winner, you are not alone. It is very easy to bet on your favorite in the Preakness Stakes, even if you’re not attending the race in person. Just make sure you use a platform that allows you to place a bet on the horse you’re rooting for, and make sure that the betting site is easy to use. That way you won’t have to spend time figuring out how your account works. To be sure that everything is set up correctly, create an account the day before, so you don’t end up without an account on the day of the race.
Another good idea is to look for a casino or online betting platform that can offer you some kind of a deal. There is great competition between the sites, and you should choose the one that fits your criteria and that promises to make the experience as good and efficient as you want it to be. You should find the perfect platform for you; not settle for something you’re not really happy with.
Who is your favorite?
The race is closing in on us and it is time to figure out who your favorite is. Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike with jockey Sonny Leon is definitely one of this year’s favorites. However, there are a lot of other great horses that you can bet on. Find the one you believe in and the one you want to support!
When you bet on your favorite horse, it is important that you do not spend more money than you can afford to lose. Remember to set a limit to how much you can spend on betting if you find it hard to stop once you have started. Have fun and enjoy the race.
