Maryland is the home of Pimlico Racecourse where the second leg of the world-famous thoroughbred Triple Crown races, the Preakness Stakes, are being held every third weekend of May.


Spring is in the air, with the traditional opening of Pimlico Race Course for the waiting of the May 19st Preakness Stakes.

Home of the prestigious $1,5 million Preakness Stakes, the race that determines whether the Kentucky Derby winner will have a chance to grab the Triple Crown. Preakness Stakes has a rich history, it was first run two years before the Derby, in 1873, and was named after the horse who won the 1870 Dinner Party Stakes, Preakness.

Pimlico Race Course - May 19, 2018

Pimlico officially opened in the fall of 1870, with the colt Preakness winning the first running of the Dinner Party Stakes. Three years later the horse would have the 1873 Preakness Stakes named in his honor. The track is also noted as the home for the match race in which Seabiscuit beat War Admiral in the second Pimlico Special, on November 1, 1938, before a crowd of 43,000. It is currently owned by Magna Entertainment Corp.

The Preakness has had some memorable horse race winners with great photo finishes. Who could ever forget horses like Northern Dancer, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed, Tabasco Cat, or Smarty Jones.

HORSE RACING GAMBLING TIPS

  • Bet only on horses you feel have a good chance of winning.

  • If you don't like a horse, don't bet on it.

  • Give preference to winners. Choose a horse that has won before.

  • Avoid betting on a horse that has just moved up in class.

  • Look for value odds as much as likely winners. If you keep looking for them, you will learn to spot them fairly quickly.

  • Look for a horse that has a fair chance of winning and is not overly backed. This is usually a good value bet in the long run. On odds of say, 10:1, you need to win once in ten attempts to break even. Anything more is net profit. Horses backed heavily by touting services and computer handicappers may win more often, but are usually poor value bets.

  • When the track is slow or heavy, give preference to fast starters. Slow, muddy and heavy track conditions usually favor the horse that takes an early lead.

  • A straight bet is simple, manageable and not too difficult to win. Play it but always weigh up the odds. Avoid favorites and long shots (outsiders) too. Be selective - don't bet on anything or everything.

  • When betting straight, consider betting to win and show, or each-way, if the odds are relatively high.

UNDERLAY

An underlay is a overbet horse. NEVER BET ON UNDERLAYS!!

OVERLAY

Odds higher than they should be, based on horse's chances of winning. Basically an overlay is an under bet horse. ALWAYS BET ON OVERLAYS YOU THINK HAVE A GOOD CHANCE TO WIN!!

NOTE: Anytime you like an overlay and and underlay, or a good-price horse and low-price horse in the same race, bet the overlay.

THREE DO'S AND DON'TS IN EXACTA BETTING.

The important point about Exacta wagering (betting horses will finish one-two in the exact order you bet them) is to use positive strategies that will pay off better the more frequently you play.

THE DON'TS

1. Don't bet favorites below 2-1 on top.

2. Don't box pairs of ling shots, which means horses at 11-1 or higher.

Instead bet both horses to win.

3. Don't bet baseballs, taking 3 horses and betting every possible combination to come one-two, total of 6 combinations.

Note: If you bet a low-price favorite on top, do not use the second and third betting choices on the bottom.

THE DO'S

1. Do bet the favorites on the bottom.
2. Do box pairs of medium-priced horses, such as 8-1 with 6-6.
3. Do bet long shots on top of favorites, but also bet on the long shot to win.
4. Do make sure you have a two to one ratio with the of what picks your are using.

HOW TO WAGER ON MY SELECTIONS

If odds are 5/2, 3-1, 7/2, 4-1, 9/2, 5-1, and 6-1, wager to WIN and PLACE. For every WIN unit ($1 bet) bet three units to place. NO SHOW WAGERS

If odds are 7-1, 8-1, 9-1, 10-1, 11-1 and 12-1, wager to WIN, PLACE and SHOW. For every WIN unit wager three place units and three show units.

When odds are 13-1 and higher wager two units to place and five units to show for every win unit bet.
