How to bet on The Preakness Stakes

There are plenty of ways to get in on the action. The outright prices are fun, but you can split your wager for an each/way market, which means you’ll get some money if your Horse finishes 2nd. The higher odds the horse is, the more reason there is to experiment with this market.

You can also bet on some exotic options which include picking both the winner and runner-up, along with 3rd/4th place finishes if you’re feeling really lucky.
