Are You Ready for the Preakness Stakes?
The Preakness Stakes is one of the most anticipated horse races of the year. It is one of the three races in the Triple Crown. Ideally, Preakness Stakes comes second after the Kentucky Derby and precedes the Belmont Stakes.
Based on when the Kentucky Derby happens, Preakness Stakes comes in May. For example, the event is scheduled for May 21, 2023, at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland. Being a popular horse racing event, there are a lot of betting markets to offer your clients.
The best part is the event already has a huge target audience. You just need to avail your services to your clients to start receiving bets. Here is what you need to know to prepare yourself for the event.
Keep an Eye on the Weather and Contenders
The horses participating in the Preakness Stakes usually participate in the first Triple Crown event. As such, you can expect the winners of the first Triple Crown event to be at this event. For instance, Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby and is expected to participate in the Preakness Stakes.
Other contenders you can expect in the event include Hot Rod Charlie, Midnight Bourbon, Concert Tour, and others. There are several reasons to keep an eye on these contenders.
First, bettors like to wager on the winner of the race. By studying these contenders, you can gather comprehensive information to help you offer competitive odds for these contenders without risking your bankroll. Remember to study the weather, too, and how these contenders perform, as it can impact how these horses perform.
The Betting Options
The other thing to master is the betting options you can offer for the Preakness Stakes. Your bookie website can feature the most common bets, such as the win or a bet on the first horse to cross the finish line.
But you have to offer more if you expect to make a significant income.
So, ensure your site has other bets such as exacta, Superfecta, show, place, and trifecta. If this is your first time offering bets on horse racing, study these bet types and how you can leverage them.
Offering more betting options creates interest among your clients. It also gives your customer a reason to bet more.
