The bet I will most happily cash will be an exacta with California Chrome finishing first and Samraat in second. I will also hedge a bit with a five horse exacta box that excludes California Chrome — just in case.
Find out who our experts believe will win, place and show in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes.
California Chrome has won the Preakness to keep alive his bid to capture horse racing’s Triple Crown.
We here at CBS Local Sports have taken an interest in the names of horses who have won the Preakness Stakes. While most are pretty stately (kudos Knight of Ellerslie, 1884), others are, well, pretty weird. Behold the 11 weirdest names of horses that have won the Preakness…
From a betting perspective California Chrome is the obvious choice in trying to build a winning ticket. He will offer no value in the win pool at odds of 3-5 or lower. That is why exacta, trifecta, and superfecta wagers (the exotic bets) are the best place to invest in this year’s Preakness.
The Kentucky Derby is among the world’s toughest races to win but California Chrome made it look easy. After his convincing win at Churchill, California Chrome will be a worthy and overwhelming favorite in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday. He is one of only three colts exiting the Derby expected to run in the Preakness. The so-called “new shooters” — those that didn’t make the cut for the Kentucky Derby but will enter the Preakness — includes a mixed-bag of 3-year-old colts and one filly who will take on the “boys.”
The key to a financially successful day will be hitting one of the multi-horse wagers: the exacta, trifecta, and superfecta. Even if the favorite California Chrome wins, a few longshots filling in the second through fourth positions could make the return on investment significant.

Palace Malice took charge on the turn for home and won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, holding off Preakness winner Oxbow and Kentucky Derby winner Orb.
Since 2000, seven post-time favorites have won the Preakness. There is no doubt that this year’s post-time favorite will be Kentucky Derby winner Orb.
It’s hard to surmise a scenario where we aren’t talking about yet another pending attempt to end racing’s long wait for the twelfth Triple Crown winner after this year’s Preakness.
After many months of analysis, it’s time for everyone to make their picks for the Kentucky Derby. I have been high on both Goldencents and Revolutionary for a few weeks and find no reason to jump ship now.
By Kevin Martin This year is the first time that colts making the field in the Kentucky Derby qualified under a new points system. In years past, colts qualified based on graded stakes earnings. A total […]
The Ladies’ Classic is clearly the best race of Breeders’ Cup weekend which is scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. The field of eight fillies and mares have won a combined fifty-seven races from ninety-four starts, an incredible 60% winning percentage.
Without I’ll Have Another, the field for the Belmont Stakes has completely opened up.
The cockiest jockey ever?
This Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Classic may lack the star power and historical significance that came with the entry of Zenyatta in last year’s edition, but it still brings together a classy field of America’s best […]
The state’s horse racing industry doesn’t see much of a future unless the tracks get slot machines.
There are a lot different elements to the Kentucky Derby that make it one of the most popular sporting events in the United States: there’s the pageantry, the mint juleps, the hats and maybe most importantly the gambling.
