Excited that we have a solid Triple Crown contender entered in the 139th running of the Preakness Stakes, we surf over to the Bodog sportsbook to check out the odds available for the second jewel of the US Horse Racing Championship series. Bodog has Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome as thick chalk at Old Hilltop as a field of ten horses will sprint from the gate at Pimlico Race Course at 6:18 PM ET on May 17, 2014. Shine on CC!
California Chrome: Top chalk following his Derby domination
Generally speaking – your average horse racing fan is a dreamer by nature. That’s especially true when it comes to the US Triple Crown Racing Series. Despite the fact that the last Champion was Affirmed, way back in 1978, hope springs eternal year in and year out. I’ll Have Another teased us in 2012 as he ran rough-shot over the field in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before coming up lame and getting scratched the morning of the Belmont Stakes. Fast-forward to 2014 and California Chrome has rekindled the Triple Crown dream after he cruised to a comfortable win in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. CC (3/5 odds) is expected to rout the Preakness field.
Bayern, Ride On Curlin & Kid Cruz would boost exotic ticket payouts
With such a huge favorite ruling the Preakness betting board, digging for a longshot or two will help bettors boost the payouts on their Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta tickets. After a Show in the G1 Arkansas Derby, Bayern was guided by Rosie Napravnik to a win in the G3 Derby Trial but was placed a controversial second after a stewards inquiry. Ride On Curlin finished a closing second in the Arkansas Derby before running 7th after a tough trip in the Derby. Kid Cruz, a dominant Federico Tesio winner over 1 1/8 miles at Pimlico on April 19, 2014, has a late charge that could kick up our payout. We will lay $20 ($240 total) on a 3, 5, 7 & 10 Exacta box at the Bodog sportsbook.
