How I’d Bet $100 On The Preakness Stakes

From a betting perspective California Chrome is the obvious choice in trying to build a winning ticket. He will offer no value in the win pool at odds of 3-5 or lower. That is why exacta, trifecta, and superfecta wagers (the exotic bets) are the best place to invest in this year’s Preakness.

Preview: California Chrome Headlines Preakness Stakes

The Kentucky Derby is among the world’s toughest races to win but California Chrome made it look easy. After his convincing win at Churchill, California Chrome will be a worthy and overwhelming favorite in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday. He is one of only three colts exiting the Derby expected to run in the Preakness. The so-called “new shooters” — those that didn’t make the cut for the Kentucky Derby but will enter the Preakness — includes a mixed-bag of 3-year-old colts and one filly who will take on the “boys.”

How I’d Bet $100 On The Kentucky Derby

The key to a financially successful day will be hitting one of the multi-horse wagers: the exacta, trifecta, and superfecta. Even if the favorite California Chrome wins, a few longshots filling in the second through fourth positions could make the return on investment significant.
