Betting on the 2014 PreaknessBet 2014 Preakness
Horse race betting online is an extremely popular American pastime; gambling on one or all of the Triple Crown races, such as online Preakness betting, is an art unto itself. People betting on the Preakness have some great advantages over those who bet on the other Triple Crown races. Online betting on the Preakness, when done properly, not only makes the race more exciting, but can also win you a lot of money.
One of the best advantages that a person betting on the Preakness online has is the fact that it is the second race in the Triple Crown. Online Preakness betting is advantageous because the bettor can look at the horses that placed at the Kentucky Derby. The horses that placed (came in 1st or 2nd) or showed (came in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd) in the Kentucky Derby are also likely to place or show in the Preakness. This is because the tracks are nearly the exact same length; the Kentucky Derby measures in at 1 mile while the Preakness is 1 3/16 mile. Indeed, the favorite to win the Preakness is often the winner of the Kentucky Derby. Most recently, Smarty Jones won both the Kentucky Derby as well as the Preakness in 2004. Funny Cide did the same thing in 2003 while War Emblem did it in 2002. Because the races of the Triple Crown are only open to three-year olds, the results from previous races are the only concrete sources of information that bookmakers and bettors have to make informed decisions.

Another place to look for information online is to look for information on the trainers and jockeys. Often, the same jockeys and trainers will show up over and over again on the winners list in the Preakness. Successful online betting on the Preakness not only involves being familiar with the horses, but also with the trainers, jockeys, and owners. For example, Bob Baffert trained two winners, Silver Charm and Real Quiet in 1997 and 1998; he did it again in 2001 and 2002 with Point Given and War Emblem.
There is, of course, always a risk when betting on horses, online or offline. They, like their human counterparts, can be wildly unpredictable. However, online betting on the Preakness can involve slightly less risk than betting on the other races in the Triple Crown. The keys to successful online Preakness betting is knowing the horse and keeping track of the history of the horse and his or her owners, trainers, and jockeys.
