Let's Watch the Triple Crown's Second Race: The Preakness!
** We'll be on time to the official Coco Bambu event in South Beach **
The Preakness, the second race of the Triple Crown of Horse Racing is happening this Saturday at the Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, MD.
If Justify, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, wins the race, he goes on to the third and last race, the Belmont Stakes, on June 9th, at Belmont Park, in Long Island, NY. If he loses, there's not Triple Crown winner this year. He's the favorite to win, followed by Good Moon, who was second at the Derby.
What better place to watch it than in our own Gulfstream Park Racing Track in Hallandale Beach!
There will be normal races at the track, so we can watch some live racing while waiting for the main event, which will be played in lots of huge televisions inside the casino.
The beauty of this location is we can bet on the race!
A bit of money, it doesn't matter how little, will do wonders to make this much more exciting, because you'll have a stake in the race. Not much is needed, as bets are as low as $2 dollars. I usually make a couple of wagers in each, and often end up winning. There are a lot of ways to do it. To the winning horse, to the second or third place; combinations where you bet to 3 of the 4 winners regardless of the order, or in the order they finish and many more. What these bets pay depends on the odds or probabilities of winning it has, obtained from the number of wages made, which are widely announced until the last moment. You can see the actual odds in one of the links below.
I'm planning to bring all of some $30 dollars to bet on the local races and the Preakness.
After this race ends, we'll head to the official Albatross event at Coco Bambu in South Beach.
