HorseRacingFLA Seeking to Go Four-for-Four
With Winning Wagers on Preakness Stakes
By Jim Freer
This is HorseRacingFLA’s fourth year in handicapping the Preakness Stakes horse race. We are confident that we can make it four-for-four in winning bets and attractive payoffs.
Winning Bets: Our Successful Strategies
For the Preakness in 2014, 2015, and 2016, our recommended wagers produced a combined return on investment (profit) of 51 percent.
In each of those races, HorseRacingFLA’s bets made a profit of at least 40 percent. Over the three races, we recommended $156.00 in bets. The bets paid a total of $234.95.
Our winning bets included the exacta and trifecta in 2014, the high-priced exacta in 2015, and the exacta and trifecta in 2016.

Note — All times listed below are Eastern Daylight.
Post positions for the Preakness will be drawn at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday. The race will be on Saturday at Pimlico in Baltimore. Scheduled post time is 6:45 p.m.
HorseRacingFLA will publish our recommended Preakness bets between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
This will allow us to factor in track conditions and any late news, while giving readers ample time to include our selections in their bets.
Prior to Saturday, HorseRacingFLA will explore handicapping angles in several exciting Preakness previews.
Check out our Thursday edition for “Hedging Strategy Success,” a special article which will provide successful hedging strategies that we use in handicapping.
The 2015 Preakness is one example. We will explain how we hit an exacta that paid $62.20 on a $1.00 bet—with the 9-10 favorite American Pharoah winning, and 28-1 shot Tale of Verve coming in second.
Kentucky Derby Winnings
HorseRacingFLA also has a winning record in handicapping the Kentucky Derby.
Our recommended Kentucky Derby bets made a profit in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
In this year’s Derby, we had Win and Show bets on Always Dreaming, the favorite who won the race, and a Show bet on Lookin at Lee, the 32-1 shot, who finished second. We did not have the correct order in our exacta or trifecta bets.
The result was that our $89.50 in recommended wagers paid $81.00. Despite that minor loss, HorseRacingFLA still have a cumulative profit of 47 percent for the last four Kentucky Derbys.
