How I’d Bet $100 On The Belmont Stakes

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.

Adam Jones: Is The Triple Crown Harder To Do In Horse Racing Or Baseball?

The last Triple Crown winner for horse racing came in 1978, and the last time it happened in baseball before Miguel Cabrera in 2012 was Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Which is harder?

11 Weirdest Names Of Horses That Won The Preakness

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…

How I’d Bet $100 On The Preakness Stakes

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.

Preview: California Chrome Headlines Preakness Stakes

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.”
