Planning for the Preakness

We are one week away, and the Preakness is weighing heavy on my mind. The Woodlawn Vase, the painting of the weather vane, and the playing of “Maryland, My Maryland.” The race is a springboard for another shot at the Triple Crown, or the detour sign that has players looking forward to summer racing.


The race overall is “chalk-player’s” delight. According to, 10 of the last 12 winners were 3-1 or less. With the talk of how Orb is coming out of the Derby, the word at the windows is pretty much the same. But don’t worry just yet. Winning Ponies and the E-Z Win Forms may be able to pull off a very nice score for the race. This is where the tier levels can help you find that pearl of wagering wisdom to load up your wallet:


  • The average exacta payoff = $92.35  over the last 15 years
  • The average trifecta payoff = $ 654.84
  • The average superfecta payoff = $ 4,962.75 over the last 14 years
  • The key to the superfecta may be hidden in the tier levels. The odds of the fourth place finisher is a sweet 13-1. E-Z Win Forms are easy to read, and color coded. They offer value to all handicappers from all walks. Easy to understand, and effective enough to make the most seasoned player pay attention. Be sure to grab yours, and get ready for a super day of action!


There are some very nice pools to take your shot. On Friday, Black Eyed Susan Day offers up a solid  all-stakes pick-four with a $250,000 minimum. Then if you think the action can’t get any better. The Preakness card has an early pick-four over races 5-8 with a $350,000 guarantee, and the crown wager of the day is the late pick-four which offers a $1,500,000.00 minimum for races 9-12. This is where Winning Ponies can help you make your day a winner. Be sure not to leave any money on the table, check-in with your E-Z Win Forms.


We need to pay attention to how the runners are shaping up making last minute plans. There is no need to jump and hop from one site to another for weather, scratches, and changes. Winning Ponies is your one-stop-shop, and it is one click away. So let the countdown begin, and keep your fingers crossed as the Triple Crown talk will turn into a fever pitch.
