Last year in 2015, we saw American Pharoah win the Preakness Stakes and then go on to win the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown. But who do you like this year? Horses have not yet been chosen for the 2016 Preakness Stakes but we like Cupid, Songbird, Nyquist and Mohaymen.
The fastest and easiest way to bet on the Preakness Stakes is online. If you bet online for the Preakness, please make sure you choose a reputable company. Preakness-stakes.info takes no responsibility for the services these websites provide.
Below are our top choices for licensed and safe wagering:
Online Horse Betting - US Racing is one of the newest ADWs online. Although it is a newcomer to the industry its management has been involved in racing for years and they lool like a promising, interactive and entertaining website. US Racing claims to have the "easiest" website for betting on horses. In our opinion is is perfectly suited for the beginner who wants to learn about how to bet on horses. They do not offer some of the information that other sites do-- but, they reason this is to make things more straightforward and easy to bet. They definitely get A+ for their processing. Accepts credit cards, debit cards, ACH and checks.
TVG.com is the interactive horseracing network that combines live, televised coverage from many of America's premier tracks with the convenience of wagering from home online, by phone, and where available, set-top remote control. TVG is owned by Gemstar and is publicly traded. Wagering services are only offered in California, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.
***UPDATE: TVG was purchased by Betfair.com. Betfair.com is a well respected international sports and gambling company.
TwinSpires.com - The home of Churchill Downs Incorporated's OFFICIAL online wagering site for the Kentucky Derby. US racing fans will have the opportunity to watch and wager on Churchill Downs Incorporated on twinspires.com, in addition to races held at other popular tracks across the country.
Very good interface for the bettor. However, membership is limited to citizens of certain states. Because of a lawsuit with the horsemen, twinspires has been limited in the races that it can offer online. We give this a HUGE thumbs up-- but you will definitely need an alternate racebook if you like betting on more than Churchill Downs races.
XpressBet.com is the OFFICIAL racebook of the Preakness Stakes and Pimlico Racecourse. Owned by the Stronach Group (formerly Magna Entertainment before a bankruptcy), Xpressbet has some of the BEST bonuses in the industry. Very solid website and easy to use.
