Pimlico Race Track Picks
Among bettors, Pimlico’s main track is noted for its tight turns and propensity to favor horses with early speed. Interestingly, this angle often gets overplayed as horse players consider their selections for the Preakness Stakes. The track’s signature event is run at a mile and one-sixteenth, which means the distance itself is often too far for many of the sprinter/miler types of animals who invariably wind up in the field. As a general rule, the Preakness is an easier race to handicap than the Kentucky Derby as the fields tend to be smaller and many of the top competitors from the Derby opt to wait for the Belmont Stakes.
From 2006-2016, five Preakness winners won the race in gate-to-wire fashion and all but two winners competed in the Kentucky Derby.
