Mandatory Credit: Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY SportsThe 2013 Preakness Stakes is finally here, and while I do not pretend to know much about horse racing, I do know that the event is an excellent excuse to gamble on a random Saturday afternoon. Orb, the American Thoroughbred, is fresh off his Kentucky Derby victory only a few weeks ago, and is already getting the Triple Crown conversation started. Orb is a substantial favorite to win the event at -120, and his odds will only increase as last-minute bettors rush to place action on the horse. So if you plan on placing a bet on Orb, then you probably should do it as soon as possible.
Here’s is a quick look at a few odds and prop bets for the event. All odds come from

Sandra said that pretty much everyone in her reply, and I'm not adding to it. I will say, however, that every time a race has the word "Oaks" in the title or name, which indicates that the race is for fillies, or fillies and mares. Races for colts and geldings don't have the word "Oaks" in them. Musafir Coupon Codes
